Art Class ~ The Emotional Response in Painting ~ Camille (Candy) Day Mar. 15 & 16

Painting w Emotions SampleThe Emotional Response in Painting

Artist-Instructor Camille (Candy) Day

March 15 & 16 – 9:30am-3:30 pm – Pot Luck Lunch

Regardless of your preferred medium, you can gain a greater focus on getting and giving a more emotional response in your paintings; taking them a step further in appreciation.  Beginners through advanced painters are encouraged to explore the elements that form a great painting: vision, heart, and the subconscious.  Passion and vision are the keys – something about the scene needs to touch you, before it can reach others.

Bring a potluck dish for the lunch break.  Bring all supplies you require (oil, paster, acrylic, or other 2d media).  

Beginning to Advanced $15o/135 – 2 day class –  March, 15 & 16 –  9:30am – 3:30pm
