Artist Laura Jennings approaches teaching with each student individually, so they can paint freely, at their own level, and paint a subject (landscape, still life, portrait, abstract, interior, etc. from life and/or from a photograph) befitting their skills and needs. She talks with each new student before taking their first class to get a feel for what he or she would like to accomplish. This enables her to help guide his or her own unique creative strategies. For each session there is an optional assignment or challenge for those students who would like more direction and/or to discover a new technique. Often the class works on diverse paintings with a few participating in the assignment/challenge. Each session focuses on learning the basics of oil painting materials, foundations of color theory, color mixing, composition, and critique. Class can also be used to learn helpful tips and techniques to help promote your art professionally. The classes are sprinkled with beginners, intermediates, and beyond students. Each class contains a relaxed, supportive, and encouraging atmosphere enabling the student to find a distinctive pathway to oil painting. All supplies will be provided or bring your own supplies if you prefer.
