    Art Central, 1329 Monterey St, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401, USA

    Class 1 of 2

    Country Charm / Meandering

    My classes are intended to engage people who have just never had the time to begin the process of learning to paint, just for the fun of doing it. Some basic knowledge is helpful, but not necessary. I want those who attend to leave feeling good about what they have accomplished and go home saying to others "look what I did and it was fun doing it!" I will lead you through each composition, showing what colors to mix,  which brush to use and how to use them, learn how to correct errors made. Take time to step back, evaluate your work, then move forward on your journey in art. Learning to paint with acrylics is fun and rewarding.

    $45.00 per person per class.  You may come to one or both classes.  Some materials are provided.  Sign up by calling, or text. 805-863-4287.  If I am
    not available when you call, please leave a message on voicemail and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

    February 24th and 25th, 10:30 am – 4:30 pm at Art Central

    In this workshop, we’ll complete a larger, more complex painting over the course of 2 days. We’ll cover all of the basics for using pastels; the different kinds of pastel and paper; and how to frame a pastel painting. We’ll start with a dry underpainting technique to provide a rich glow. This is an instructor-led class with demonstrations each step of the way. All experience levels welcome.

    Cost: $170

    What you should bring (supplies available at Art Central):

    -   Your pastel set. Limited sets of pastels are available for rent through Art Central.

    -   A 16” x 20” or 18” x 24” sheet of sanded paper, like UArt 400 - 500 grit, plus some scrap sanded paper. Attach your paper to foam core using artists tape or clamps. I’ll email an example of the sketch for this scene so that everyone can have the drawing done before the workshop starts. Optionally, I can provide the pre-sketched paper for $30 and you’ll just have to bring the mounting board.

    -   A rag to wipe your fingers.

    -   Several packing peanuts or a few paper towels for blending.

    What I'll provide:

    -   A reference photo for each student.
    -   Tables, chairs and table easels.
