5/28   The Portrait in Color Pencil
​Using the portrait as a subject, learn to create your own limited palettes in color pencil and explore techniques for rendering the portrait using color and shape relationships. 

6/4   Looking out, painting windows
​We are all spending a lot of time looking outside from our windows.  Why not paint them? Windows are a challenging subject so we’ll look at examples of windows from painters past and current, study their techniques and apply them to our own paintings in gouache or acrylic.
