Fundamentals of Painting with Oscar Peterson

Please note: This class will be held virtually using Zoom. Click HERE to learn more about online learning with HAM and contact Joan Gavornik with any questions or concerns.

Paint a hammer that looks like a hammer!  In this class students will learn to create realistic images through the fundamental principles of capturing light, planes, structure, and proportion.  They will also practice painting from observation and acquire the skills to start, establish and finish a painting. Ideal for beginner and intermediate students.
