All levels, oil or acrylic. You can bring a photo or paint along with Patrick who will answer questions and help with problems. Areas covered will be composition, color mixing, drawing/transferring reference photo, and basic brush techniques.

Materials List

Welcome to “Painting with Patrick”. These painting sessions are open to beginners and also to those that have been painting for some time that would like to go to the next level.

I use oil paints for my demonstration paintings as well as my studio paintings, but feel free to use acrylic paints if you prefer them.

During the first class, I will begin a new painting in front of the class. This will include  a demonstration showing how to begin a painting. Also discussed will be elements that make a painting more pleasing to the eye (composition) , the mixing of colors, drawing (how to transfer your image to the canvas) and basic brush technique. Each additional class over the six-week period will begin with a painting  demonstration where I will take the painting started the first week to the next level. The remainder of the class time will be spent painting, where I will be available to answer questions and help with problems. The subject matter of the paintings I demonstrate vary from month to month but include Florida landscapes, seascapes, island cottages, tropical foliage, nautical settings and still life.

The art students can bring in a photo that they would like to paint, a painting already started, or they can paint the same painting along with the instructor as I complete the painting over the six week period.

Students that have been working in colored pencil for a while will work on refining techniques and be introduced to new ones while exploring new mediums and surfaces.

The first class we will do a color wheel in colored pencil to get use to pencil technique and pencil colors. We will then do a small project together learning how to develop value by layering. After that, while I will always have a supply of projects to do, each student is encouraged to bring projects that are of interest to them. As the classes continue, we will work on technique, value, color, and theory while adding other techniques and skills.

This class will be a lot of fun. Pencils are a great medium. They are so portable and there is no mess or clean up. You do not need to carve out a lot of time. They can be picked up for 5 minutes or 5 hours.

There is time for 8 participating artists
to exhibit 2 works of art to be critiqued.
 
You are invited to bring in works still in progress or completed.
 
All observing artists will listen to the critiques but cannot exhibit any works.
