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.
Photoshop for Artists
Instructor: Peter Granucci
Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 24 & 25, 10:00am-1:00pm each day, plus the the following Saturday, Oct. 31, 10:00am-1:00pm
Many artists have discovered the ease with which they can explore ideas and stimulate their creativity using Photoshop. This class will give you an overview of some of the basic tools and means of painting and drawing in Photoshop. It’s for beginners, mostly, and all you need is your computer and Photoshop. You’ll learn how to create new ideas and how to use the tools to improve and edit your existing ideas (your original physical artwork). It’s fun, it’s direct, and eminently useful.
I will teach this class on Zoom, so it takes place in the comfort of your own home! Zoom is easy to use. We will meet briefly before the class begins to make sure that everyone knows how to join into Zoom. Easy Peasy!
