Creating an Impression – Painting Class with Jay Dampf
July 8 @ 9:00 am - July 12 @ 4:00 pm$425.00
The goal of impressionism is to capture the feel and emotional impact of the subject portrayed rather than just creating a literal depiction of it. In this course, every level of painter will learn how to free up their hand and mind towards a more exuberant and forgiving style of painting. This is an excellent opportunity for absolute beginners as instruction is easygoing and highly individual. You may choose to work in the studio or outside with oils or acrylics as the recommended media. This course will begin with some clear, practical drawing exercises to enhance observation and portrayal skills. The remainder of the course will be devoted to individual instruction in the mediums, styles and subjects of each learner’s choosing. This is an excellent opportunity for students to expand their knowledge of their favourite medium or learn the basic skills of a new one. Students will also learn a great deal through demonstration given to others in their mediums and styles.
