Beautiful Brushstrokes: Making Them Count
Let's explore what your brushes can do and learn to make your brushstrokes count. Discover how they can add textures, direction, and movement to your paintings. Each class Joan will lead demonstrations and helpful critiques. Artists often neglect paint application and brushstroke while giving importance to composition and color. Exciting brushstrokes, though, add flare to your creativity. Find your inner spirit and let your brush sing. All mediums are welcome: watercolor, oil, waterbase oil, and acrylic. Each medium has inherent qualities that your brushstrokes can showcase.
A supply list will be provided upon registration.
