STILL LIFE, LANDSCAPE, FIGURE • TOM SEMMES • SATURDAYS, APR 9-JUNE 11 • 1:30-4pm

INSTRUCTOR: TOM SEMMES

Painting directly from life is a great way to expand your skills and explore new inspiration for artistic expression. In this class we will work with a variety of classic subject matter, starting with still life to ‘warm up’ and moving on to “plein air” landscape (when the weather allows) and the human figure.  We will examine a range of stylistic approaches from loose abstraction to precise realism. Beginning students will benefit from demos in drawing basics and color mixing. Students are encouraged to use painting media they are most comfortable with, i.e., oil, acrylic watercolor, etc.. Class concludes with a critique of student work. For more information, contact the instructor at tsemmes54@gmail.com or 301-502-1722. 9 sessions. Model fee extra
