2017 Art Classes

Basic landscapes in Oils

This class is for the individual that has little or no experience in painting with oils. We will cover general methods and techniques in landscape painting. We will be following step by step demonstrations in painting basic landscape elements such as clouds & skies, trees, water, rocks, and reflections. There will be plenty of one-on-one help for each student based on their individual progress and abilities. In the process you'll experience general paint mixing. We'll discuss tonal values & colour harmonies, and the general usage of brushes, in varying shapes and sizes.

Art classes will take place at the Daase Art Studio in Kelowna. Classes are 3 hours in length. Dates and time of classes are to be determined when each class is filled.

Contact us to register your name for a class. Please state your availability for afternoon and/or evening classes.
