Students will start with watercolors and work up to oil paints, learning how the elements of art apply to each new medium. Assignments will explore how to properly mix and use colors, use value to imitate lighting, work from observation, and more. Exercises will gradually become more advanced from the beginning sketches to a completed piece.
