Instructor: Rachael Bailey
Thursday Evenings from 5:30-7:30

This class is for students who understand basic drawing and painting techniques and want to learn how to broaden the possibilities of a single piece. We will be learning how to unite different media into one drawing by learning how to: transition between materials to create cohesion and unity, how to use dry and water-based media together, and how to use oil paint on paper with other media. The first 5 classes will be single-piece exercises with a shared image reference to build basic understanding of concepts. The last three weeks will be students choosing their images and receiving individual instructor aid to create a piece they are interested in!
