Upcoming Art Classes

Howard Park Painting Workshop

Howard Park returns again for his popular watercolor and oil painting class. These classes focus on two techniques: Line & Wash and Oil Painting. In June and August, Howard will teach two-day workshops. July will feature a week-long class.


July Session: 17th – 21st

Have a great vacation planned this Summer that you’d like to remember, or do you want to learn to quickly record events and experiences as they happen?  Or fill your diary with illustration? Learn simple methods of developing lines, forms and values while making quick sketches with pen and watercolor. These sketches can serve as studies for later paintings, or as records of experiences. Work from photographs, personal objects, or from the out door environment.  All levels welcome!

August Session: 14th & 15th, 10 am – 3 pm

Discover how quickly a scene can be sketched out in oils using rapid and minimal brush strokes. Develop compositions based on simple placement rules, focusing on contrast and expression. Learn to use a limited palette to minimize mixing and match values, tones, highlights and local color. Techniques and demos are applicable for plein air painters or indoor painters working from photographs, in oils or acrylics. All levels welcome!

More classes available upon request.
