10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
Beginners, intermediate, and advanced levels are welcome. Classes are primarily focused on oil painting, but Curney welcomes artists who work in acrylic and watercolor. The use of oil paint — from brushes and canvases to palette and technique — is the emphasis in these classes. Curney will demonstrate how the use of a limited palette emphasizes the importance of color, value, intensity, and placement of paint. Composition and the use of photos versus using still-life setups and plein air landscapes will be discussed. Demos and exercises are combined with painting time, or artists have the option to paint on their own with help from Curney throughout the class. Fee: $180 for 6 classes; the 7th class is free or can be used as a makeup.
To register, email Susan Dull at email@example.com or call 804.914.9791. Make checks for $180 payable to Susan Dull and mail to 304 Saint David’s Lane, Richmond, VA 23221.
