ABOUT THE CLASSES

Be ready for an action-packed series of fun classes as Linda teaches you a variety of methods of the popular paint-pouring technique. You'll learn how to create "cells'' and how to do dirty, tilted, and circular pours. You’ll also be able to experiment with a Dutch method of paint pouring. Students will be shown ideas of further developing their work with the use of silhouettes or painted imagery on top of the dried pieces. You'll create a number of pieces in this class and have a lot of freedom to explore this magical technique. There will be a half hour lunch break, but you may opt to continue working during that time. The guild has a refrigerator and microwave on the premises for your use.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

"I did not take painting seriously until after I retired." Linda Rennie says she knew she loved the idea, but never had formal training and did not know if she had any talent. That changed when she started taking workshops with the Portland Art Guild. "They were fun," she says, "and each had different teachers, techniques and mediums... and then I was hooked." The more she learned the more she wanted to learn. "It has been a wonderful experience and I hope the journey never ends. I enjoy painting in many mediums: acrylics, watercolors, oil pastels. Linda has an affinity for animal portraits. “It's the eyes that do it for me, which makes it difficult to part with them when I finish! Most of all I love creating them, and that makes it fun.”

Mondays: November 7th, 14th, & 21st

From: 10am – 2pm

$84 for Guild Members

ABOUT THE CLASSES

This workshop is designed to help artists develop a better understanding of the essentials of acrylic painting. Instruction and demos will cover materials, brush work, color mixing, simplifying a composition for impact, and building a painting step by step. The class will include lively discussion of master artists and their work. Students will learn from, and gain inspiration by painting copies of master paintings – a tried and true way to learn and develop your own style. You are encouraged to bring a color copy of an artist’s work you especially like. The instructor will also bring color copies of paintings as an option for you to work from as well. The series will focus on process, on hands-on learning, and on personalized instruction. It is open to all levels, but some basic working knowledge of painting with acrylics is recommended.
