Calendar Next available session starts Jul 6, 2022 at 1 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Take your work to the next level under the guidance of artist/critic/mentor Kassem Amoudi in this live Zoom class.  Expert instruction and advice will push you to explore new possibilities and work more intuitively, allowing unplanned marks and passages to become artistic breakthroughs.  Paint from personal subject matter to find your own visual language, informed by examples from contemporary and modern art. Painting experience recommended.  Kassem will begin each class with a slide presentation/lecture focusing on how master artists through history have addressed color, harmony, focal points, space, mark making, paint application, and more, and how to apply these concepts to your own work.
