Fall Teen Art: Oils and Advanced Classes

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.

Oils II: Landscape Compositions

These 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.

Oils II: Pop Art Movie Portraits

Using 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!
