Oil Painting: The Painted Portrait
Fridays, December 7, 14 & 21 @ 1- 3 p.m.
Cost: $100 ($80 for M members)
This is a three-part class.
Learn the basic terminology and practice fundamental techniques of oil painting, (e.g. color mixing and relationships, underpainting, tone, mark-making, and texture). Then use these techniques to paint a colorful and expressive portrait, based on a photograph you bring from home. Classes include brief demonstrations by the instructor and discussion about contemporary portraiture, while exploring portrait paintings on display from the M’s collection. All experience levels welcome. (Ages 13+)
Scholarships are available on request for half and full tuition on a first come, first served basis. Classes are free at the M for Native community members. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (651) 797-2571 for more information.
