Power of Positive Painting

with Robert Maniscalco

Thursdays, September 7, 14, 21 & 28


4 Weekly Small Group Classes

Robert will teach you to think like a painter. He presents a short drawing/painting lesson at the beginning of each session. Students may work in any medium and subject. Rob will provide/suggest reference material as necessary. We will set goals together but will tailor the work to the individual needs of the student. Goals can be as broad as mastering an idiom like portraiture or landscape. Or they can be as specific as learning to develop a greater variety of edges in oil painting. Honest observation will be the key.

The instruction will be tailored to allow for a deepening of the individual’s unique approach and response to the project at hand. Expect lots of individual attention here.

We will explore value-based “light on form” painting methods to create expressive, paintings and deepen the level. Classes will consist of a short demo, followed by individual work, depending on interest. All levels encouraged to participate. The focus will be on gaining a deeper understanding of values to achieve form, character and likeness.

$135.00 Includes Four Consecutive Classes. Registration is limited and must be paid in advance.

These classes must be taken consecutively, with one excused absence allowed.
