Instructor: Rebecca Madura / 4 weeks / Apr 10 - May 1 / Wednesday / 9:00AM - 12:00PM
Class Size: 5-10

Description:

This workshop is for students interested in the study painting at the academy; yet, would like the opportunity to explore formal art concepts and painting techniques through a less structured studio experience in order to gain confidence and experience. Resembling an independent or open studio class, students will work on their own paintings with an instructor to provide support, guidance, and instruction based on individual student goals. 

This course is ideal for students who would like to explore painting for the first time while learning the basics of composition, color, and technique. Returning students will gain more experience with their painting medium, and can refresh their knowledge and skills. The workshop would also provide a opportunity for students to complete works in progress with guidance.

Student may work in either oil or acrylic paint. If you already have paint,  bring what you have to start.

Prerequisites: None

Supplies:

Beginning Oil Palette (cool)

  • CERULEAN BLUE
  • CADMIUM LEMON
  • ULTRAMARINE BLUE
  • ALIZARIN CRIMSON
  • TITANIUM WHITE (large tube)
  • WINSOR RED (or Cadmium Red Medium)
  • YELLOW OCHRE
  • RAW UMBER
  • RAW SIENNA
  • ULTRAMARINE VIOLET
  • VIRIDIAN
  • Magenta (can be mixed -red, white, ultramarine blue)
  • Burnt Sienna (can be mixed- orange and violet)

Other recommended supplies:

  • Painting medium: such as Galkyd, Liquin, Neo Megilp
  • Bar of soap (ie. lava), rags or good quality paper towels (I like the blue automotive towels), baby oil (preferred) or safflower oil (clean up)
  • Enamel, glass, or disposable palette. (Dollar store baking sheets, glass plates also work well)
  • Palette knife
  • painter’s tape
  • Brushes- various sizes (ie. 2,4,6,8,10,12,14) …Brights or filberts. A couple of rounds maybe be useful. Sable, Sable essence, natural white bristle or Synthetic mixed brushes are recommended.
  • Painting supports and surfaces: various sized canvas (stretched or unstretched), canvas panel, gessoed cardboard or arches, or a pad of ARCHES oil paper for beginning pieces. (I suggest 8” x 10” or 12” x 16” max…square surfaces are good too!) Since this is a workshop, much of what we will be doing is considered studies, so inexpensive surfaces are fine!)

NOTE: solvents (gamsol,turpentine, turpenoid etc…) are not necessary! Oil brushes can cleaned with baby oil, and soap and water. Well cleaned brushes will last until you wear them out!

ACRYLIC: Same colors (May substitute Ultra Blue with Phthalo Blue, and Viridian with Phthalo Green)
Mediums are optional. There are a variety of acrylic mediums, but if you prefer a longer drying time, a slow-dry medium or retarder would be helpful. For clean up, soap and water is all that is needed.
