Class Description:
If you have ever felt lost or frustrated in a painting class, you will find it very different here. Valorie has developed a comprehensive curriculum, providing basic information frequently not included in many art classes. You will learn about the various types of brushes, painting applications, painting techniques and color theory. Choose your own subjects as you complete assigned exercises and progress at your own pace. If you have painted before, you can continue from your current level.   Build on what you already know and fill in information you may have missed in previous art classes. Students often repeat this class, building on what they learned before, without repeating exercises already completed.  You can continue attending through the advanced level if you wish. The class includes lectures, notes, demonstrations, individual help, and an optional workbook ($18).  
Note: Requires the use of non-toxic Turpenoid Natural, and Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits, rather than turpentine or other dangerous solvents.

Class Description:
For students who have painted long enough to have a comfortable grasp of painting techniques, brushwork, and color mixing. Not for beginners or those new to oils. If you are self-taught or haven't painted for several years, you will want to begin with a Thursday class first.

This class is designed to complete and build on your foundation of painting concepts and techniques.  Whatever your skill level, fill in information you may have missed from other classes and take your art to the next level.  Because the class is small, I’ll work with you individually to help you achieve your personal artistic goals.

Come to class with a painting project to work on, along with an art goal you would like to work toward during this session.  If you aren't certain about your goal, we can talk about it in class. If you are new to this class, you might want to bring one or two completed paintings, to help us decide where you might most effectively focus your efforts.
Note: Requires the use of non-toxic Turpenoid Natural, in the green can, and Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits, rather than turpentine or other dangerous solvents.

Supply list:  Bring your usual painting supplies.  Suggested supplies are on the Supply List tab at the top of this blog.
