Concentrating on either oil painting or watercolor, our painting courses integrate
lectures, demonstrations, direct observation, and hands-on exploration in order
to provide a technical background that allows participants to discover their
preferences and develop their own style. Experience in drawing is helpful,
but not necessary. Many of the courses are process-oriented, and focus
on techniques and skills that students can utilize outside of the classroom,
such as color-mixing and incorporating a variety of surfaces and textures.
