Class Code: DN180527

Workshop Fee: $120

Medium: Oils and Acrylics

Sunday, May 24th, Noon to 5 pm

The BEST paintings in the world ride the fine line between chaotic and creative, but student paintings too often look stiff, boring, and muddy. Why? In a word: TIMIDITY. In this 5-hour class, students will take big steps toward overcoming this tendency by painting just a little bit crazy.— BIG brushes, BOLD strokes, STRONG colors and FEARLESS drawing. You will walk out of this class with a heart full of courage and a mind full of ideas to get your paintings to the NEXT LEVEL. NOTE: Each artist in this class will paint in BOTH acrylics AND oils. Each student is requested to provide a full complement of EITHER oils or acrylics; Dan will provide the alternate supplies to each student.
