Class instructor, Barbara Friedman, will help you begin your journey with oils. Working in the alla – prima style of painting – wet on wet, you will paint a still life while focusing on composition, value, lights, shadows, and color mixing. You will learn about transparent colors versus opaque. At the end of the class, you will understand why Barbara refers to painting as “mediation in action.”  The canvas will be supplied.

About the Artist – Barbara Friedman is from the Milwaukee area and also spends time at her seasonal home in Watersmeet, MI.  She is a multi-disciplined artist, working in oils, watercolor, and stained glass. During the warmer months Barbara can be found plein-air painting in her perennial gardens, often inviting friends to join her.  During winter, she is back inside the studio to focus on stained glass art.  Barbara enjoys teaching and sharing her many talents.  She is especially motivated to teach the skills that her students will need to connect with their own creative spirit and style.
