When you sign up, you will be emailed a link to join the class.   You can participate on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.  

 

Learn the basics or work on developing what you already know in this weekly class. Each week is a stand-alone lesson, so sign up for one session or plan on attending each week to build your skills.  The lessons Becky shares each week will help beginners learn the basics, while engaging intermediate painters in ways that will develop their skills. Becky has created a warm and welcoming class environment where all her students feel encouraged.

Granucci -Mood + AtmosphereMaster Class in Painting: Mood and Atmosphere

(10% discount for members!  = $1,035 for full series and /or $121 session.)

This year’s Master Class will be taking place online through Zoom. Using Zoom is an incredibly useful and powerful way to learn about art and painting. We’re able to really examine everybody’s work individually. I can review and discuss and demonstrate on everyone’s work in a way that can’t be done in person. The beautiful thing about learning about art is that it’s a never ending opportunity to learn and grow, to take ourselves to a new level! There is no better time to learn art than now. We will discuss and learn about the primary foundational concepts that are common to all art, such as, Values, Color, Composition, Drawing, “a la prima” painting, brush work…

This year there will be a special focus on Mood and Atmosphere. There is probably no more useful skill to help you get excited about your own work and to distinguish yourself from other artists.  This series of classes is a mixture of Lecture, Demonstration, Question and Answers, Assessment of your work (this is a 100% supportive and encouraging environment!), and technical instruction of paint and paint handling. This class also follows the interests of all the artists, and we have lots of fun conversations and shared insights. It is not a formula method of painting, each person paints in their own style.
