This on-going, challenging course with Charles Young Walls will expose you to principles of design and the visual language. It is taught with the individual artist in mind – teaching principles of visual language to equip you with the necessary skills, without smothering artistic vision. In a progressive and comprehensive manner, you will be trained to look, see, and think in a way that will equip you to make art completely yours. True artistic freedom comes when you have developed the skills to convey, on a two-dimensional surface, what your vision has led you to paint. This class is devoted to teaching fundamental principles of design and technique to empower you.
This class utilizes both figure models and still life. Primarily an oil painting class, charcoal is also encouraged.
The class meets on Tuesdays, scheduled and paid in 6-week blocks. Both an afternoon class (1-4 pm) and an evening class (6-8:30 pm) are available.
