Island-based instructor Diane Crago offers step by step private instruction in a small group setting. Class runs four consecutive Friday afternoons. Students learn the techniques of the Old Masters, studying glazing, impasto and use of a palette knife. They will discover how to create a realistic painting with inner glow and lasting beauty. This course includes lessons in color mixing and composition. Students will have the choice of either acrylic or oil colors, all included in the course fee. Fume free oil paint cleanup allows students to explore either or both without the downside of chemical sensitivity.
