Sky, Clouds, and Water!


Friday, April 20, 2018,   10-4 pm

Bay School Community Art Center, Mathews, VA

$100, bring your own supplies (no solvents or mediums with a smell);
or +$10 to use my water-mixable oils    Pay the instructor in class for this material fee


(bring lunch/snacks/drinks, or go out for lunch)

Students will create several small studies about painting sky, clouds and water/reflections.  The instructor will have photos but students may also bring their own, printed or on the computer, or even make up some! The goal for the day is not necessarily ‘finished’ works. It is all about understanding what you are seeing, and the fun of portraying air, light, and movement. The best news: we clean up with soap and water (if you use my paints)! 

Additional Information

The student should bring PAINTS (see below), pencil or pen, several small / medium sized canvases or boards (approx. 8 x 10, 9 x 12), brushes, palette knife, apron / gloves (if desired).

(+$10) I will bring my water-mixable oils, and you are welcome to use those if you wish. Clean up is soap and water. Use your own knife or brush. Pay me in class 

Point of View—linear perspective for everyone!

Linear perspective… If it’s right, no one will notice. If it’s wrong... that’s ALL they will notice. Learn basic one- and two-point perspective, with history, sketching activities, and final drawings. Simple tricks to make it work. It's not hard!


Participants need to bring a 12-inch ruler, pencil, eraser, and sharpener. Paper is provided.
