Still Life Oil Painting with Rick Daskam – Thursdays 9:30am-12:30pm

Rick Daskam Archive: Adult

In this class, students will paint from still life arrangements provided by the instructor. We will focus on personally expressive, representational painting. Classes will incorporate lessons on drawing skills, light and shadow, composition, color relationships and values. Students will complete a small painting in each session, allowing the painter to become confident and sure in their work. All levels of expertise welcome! All that is necessary for this class is the supplies listed a smile and a positive attitude, well…the smile is optional!
