Learn to paint in oils, pastels and acrylics from photographs (portraits, landscapes, or reproductions of the masters). Learn techniques for drawing, mixing colors, applying your particular medium, and creating your painting. Students are given personal instruction with emphasis on individual needs. Be prepared to paint in the first session (see materials list below)!
