Join us for an exciting painting class!  Working perceptually from still-life set ups we’ll develop skills in learning different ways to handle paint and mix color, while also exploring color & value, volume, light and space, and composition. We’ll be learning to put on canvas what we see — with emphasis on the act of painting, methods and approaches. Some basic knowledge of paint and color is helpful. Bring supplies to first class; a materials list will be sent to registrants.

    AFTER AN ABSENCE FROM PAINTING FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS—-MY RETURN, AND MY FIRST CLASS WITH LUCY WERE EXTREMELY SPECIAL/EXCITING, AND OPENED ME TO THE EXCITEMENT OF WORKING, OR PLAYING WITH BRUSHES, AND MIXING COLORS THAT ‘PLAY’ WITH EACH OTHER. THIS WAS A REMINDER OF THE POWER OF PASSION ONE CAN DISCOVERY….ONE CAN CREATE, WHEN PAINTING. I WOULD ACTUALLY FEEL FANTASTIC. AS THE PAINTING GROWS, IS CREATED, IT BEGINS TO GLOW AS ONE MIXES AND PUTS THE BRUSH TO THE CANVAS—-AND YOU WORK THE FORMS, AND I COULD HEAR THEM [I THINK>>>TALK TO ME, GUIDE ME, OR STOP ME……AT TIMES]. THUS AS A PAINTER, YOU ARE NOT ALONE, YOU SEEM TO BECOME A ‘TEAM’ OF PERHAPS SPECIALISTS OFTEN SLAPPING A WRIST……
    AND, MY PAINTING BEGINS TO GLOW WITH PRIDE, AND I FEEL AN SENSE OF POWER, A SENSE OF PRIDE THAT I HAD FORGOTTEN. YET NOW, THAT I HAVE AGAIN DISCOVERED THIS ‘MAGIC’ I FEEL A STRONGER PASSION FOR MY ART, AND MY LIFE.
    MY SPECIAL THANKS FOR ALL THE THOUGHTFUL ‘TIPS’ OF GUIDANCE GIVEN TO ME BY MS LUCY BARBER. ACTUALLY, SHE IS ONE EXCEPTIONAL ARTIST, AND AN EXTRAORDINARY TEACHER.
