Location: Sacramento Fine Arts Center.

Description: These oil painting classes will emphasize working quickly and completing at least two paintings in 4-6 afternoons. We will be using a direct approach, which the impressionists called “Alla Prima,” or “all at once.” Your completed paintings will have a fresh, spontaneous feel. We will be working from your photos (or mine) for reference and inspiration, and not just to “copy.”

In the 6-week session we will also be working from a still life. You will create new, unique, beautiful works of art! Technique, composition, color and values will all be addressed, as a group and individually. This class is for all levels of painters. Victoria will be doing several quick demos, as well as giving, frequent, constructive class critiques.

Start Time: 12:30-3:30pm
Date: Tuesdays, October – May.
