Painting Classes + Workshops
Mondays, September 14 – December 14 | 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Christopher Wynn will demonstrate many of the watercolor techniques he uses in his contemporary realism. He typically “mixes and rolls” the paint directly on the paper to achieve soft, organic gradients, transitions virtually impossible in other mediums. These techniques often bring surprising results, as there is an element of “hit-or-miss.” Christopher will also demonstrate how to mix a tri-color black (for greater depth in watercolor), effective mixing techniques, the use of various warm and cool grays, charging techniques to bounce and enhance light in a work, and his use of resist (or masking fluid). Lastly he will discuss the materials he prefers and why. Each class offers a great deal of individual attention. Fee: $375 for 12 classes. Fee can be prorated for missed classes if the instructor is notified before the first class.

Participants choose their medium — acrylic or oil — in this 10-week studio painting class that is open to all levels. Class size is limited so that each participant receives individual attention. Composition, color mixing, paint application, and use of value will be discussed. Demos will be brief so the majority of class time can be spent painting. A supply list will be provided upon registration. Fee: $295 for ten classes, paid in advance

Beginners, intermediate and advanced levels are welcome. Classes are primarily focused on oil painting, but Curney welcomes artists who work in acrylic and watercolor. The use of oil paint — from brushes and canvases to palette and technique — is the emphasis in these classes. Curney will demonstrate how the use of a limited palette emphasizes the importance of color, value, intensity, and placement of paint. Composition and the use of photos versus using still-life setups and plein air landscapes will be discussed. Demos and exercises are combined with painting time, or artists have the option to paint on their own with help from Curney throughout the class. A “New Student Info File” will be emailed to new students. Fee: $270 for nine classes, paid in advance. There will be no classes during Thanksgiving week. A holiday lunch will be held on December 8 at Crossroads! To register, send a check and a note with your name and choice of class day and time to Susan Dull at 304 Saint Davids Lane, Richmond, VA 23221.
