We've had some pretty great art come out of these 3 classes: Oils I, Oils II and Advanced Art
Here's what they have created this Fall.
Oils I Paintings
Oils I is a beginner class where we do a lot of color mixing projects. We also learn a lot about different painting techniques, like layering, wet in wet. The class is also taught step by step for the first few projects.
|Monarch Butterfly by Taylor, age 11|
Oils II: Landscape CompositionsThese students choose and design their own compositions within a theme. A small class, capped at 6 students, makes it possible for me to demo paint, teach a mini lesson, and bounce between students to help them individually.

|Aspen Trees, by Bayleigh, age 12|
|Seattle CityScape, by Karlee, age 16|
|The Tetons, by Nathan, age 14|
|Stag in the Sunset, by Dakota, age 13|
Oils II: Pop Art Movie PortraitsUsing a black and white photo of their favorite movie star, the students chose a color and worked in shades and tints to create the painted image. It was quite tricky, but they turned out very cool!
