Portrait and Still Life Oil Painting Classes

Join artist, Marcia Klioze in the friendly ambiance of her home /studio for oil painting classes. Participants paint their choice of either portraiture or still life. Concentration on still life focuses on the beauty found in simple things, and portraiture is taught with an emphasis on choosing a good photo reference. We focus on blocking in, color, value, and composition. Classes are designed to teach painting fundamentals such as: seeing the big shapes, analyzing value shifts, controlling edge quality, and color. Demos are provided and because classes are small there's plenty of individual instruction. All levels are welcome!
