Still Life Painting in Water Colors with Jamie
Six week session for Ages 18+
Fridays 5-7 PM Feb 22, March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
Expand your creativity! Learn the technique of painting water color still life from instructor Jamie Coptic.
In class you will be learning how to paint a still life with watercolor paint. Jamie will be doing a short lecture, then move into having the students work for most of the class. You will learn from instruction, watching Jamie work, and hands on one on one time with the instructor. The goal is to get the a few fine sketches completed, and about 2 or 3 finished paintings of flowers, fruits in a basket, etc… Composition, color theory, learning of materials, and drafting with pencil and painting will all be covered in the class.
Jamie Coptic is a largely self taught painter, who attended The Art Institute of Pittsburgh for a time. Jamie’s passion for the arts is contagious, and she is looking to share it with everyone from a first time painter to a seasoned pro. “I am in my natural element every time I lay brush to canvas.”
