Painting by Max-Karl Winkler

In this combination course, students work from still life, architectural interiors, and landscape to translate the world of three dimensions to two through the arts of drawing and painting.

The class first focuses on drawing in order to understand value structure and the use of contrast to describe form. Next, move into the medium of oil paint to learn color mixing and how to employ a painterly approach to construct form, light, and space. Ideal for beginning students, the goal of the class is to become articulate and comfortable with the fundamentals of oil painting and to approach it with confidence.

A supply list may be downloaded from this page no later than 2 weeks prior to the first session.

Instructor: Max-Karl Winkler

8 sessions, 2.5 hours each (no class Nov. 10 or Nov. 24)
