The painting style of any subject is what makes each artist and painting unique. Students will learn about the painting styles of Impressionism, Cubism, Realism and Surrealism. We will review color mixing, composition, under painting and paint application techniques for each of these styles. Students will then select a painting style to interpret in an original acrylic landscape or still life painting. The class will combine teacher demonstration with work time devoted to individual instruction.
