  1. 4045: Drawing and Painting with a Photo Reference

    April 17, 2018, 9:15 AM - 12:15 PM @ Edina Art Center

    Having a good image is the beginning of a good painting. Our images should have a good balance between lights and darks, warm and cool values, an interesting composition and clear detail. Drawing using the sight-size or the comparative method is encouraged, but our focus is on painting and means to shortcut the drawing stage can be used when needed. This class offers an opportunity to see with fresh eyes.
