This course will introduce students to various techniques in painting, ranging from different paint application methods to developing an awareness of volume and form using the medium. This foundation-level course will draw upon the AGO’s painting collections as a platform for teaching methods and techniques. Students are responsible for the purchase of their own materials. A material list will be provided on the first day of class.

I expected to only learn painting techniques; instead I learned more about the creative process. This course exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds.”
