Using the same reference, students create from the beginning to the end of class, following along with Adele to get started, then completing the painting with her supervision, demonstrations, and advice. Reserve your space soon; these classes fill up quickly. A supply list will be sent prior to each class. Fee: $75, due one week prior to class or upon registration. Supply list provided upon registration.

Fall Painting Classes with Curney Nuffer

Choose from three sessions:

Mondays*, October 3 – December 5 | 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Tuesdays*, October 4 – December 6 | 9:00 a.m. – noon

Tuesdays*, October 4 – December 6 | 2:00 – 5:00 p.m.

*No classes during Thanksgiving week.

 

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: $300 for 10 classes, paid in advance. No refunds after class begins. Missed classes may be made up during any other sessions. 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. Learn more about Curney at www.curneynuffer.com.
