* New Classes *

Beginning Oil

Carole Stroiber, Instructor
Thursdays 10 am – 1 pm
February 23 – March 30

The class will start at the beginning Carole will demonstrate the correct way to maintain your tools and paint. You will become skilled in using the palette knife for mixing colors, their tints, and shades.  We will mix primary colors with their complimentary colors to create neutrals used for believable shadows.  Our first painting will be a sky.  We observe the clouds and light.  We will use acrylic paint for our “underpaintings”. We will learn how to apply the oil paint with a brush or palette knife to make a glaze or implasto type technique. Upon our sky painting we will add some interesting landscape elements. There is very little drawing in this beginner’s oil painting class.  

Six-week class is $120/$135 (member/nonmember). Email fcacinfo@gmail.com to sign up!

Intermediate Oil

Carole Stroiber, Instructor
Thursdays 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
February 23 – March 30

The class will begin with the instructor learning what you already know about painting and what you prefer to paint. Carole will observe your brush technique and observe you personal style of painting.  We will begin by painting a still life which will be set up by the students.  We will discuss the history of still lives, see some famous still lives, talk about perspectives and viewing the still life and the color palette that we will individually choose, and objects chosen for their shape, color, and size.  Carole will demonstrate at every step of the way and will even repeat demonstrations. No two paintings will look alike but all will learn and have fun.

Six-week class is $120/$135 (member/nonmember). Email fcacinfo@gmail.com to sign up!
