In this class, students will paint a variety of plants and animals with photographs as resources. Additionally, to commemorate the upcoming 80th birthday of Scarsdale Adult School, we will collaborate on a special mixed media and watercolor presentation piece. Color mixing, design principles, perspective, friendly but constructive class critiques, short demos, and composition will help each artist to develop their own personal style of painting. Lessons will include portraits of wild animals in their habitats as well as beautiful florals. This class is intended for students who have some experience with the medium.
