ART with Friends

Posted by Rosemary Rogers on July 29, 2013 at 11:30 AM

As we start our fourth year of classes at the MAP, we celebrate the friendships and creations of our adult painting classes. We are so proud to be a part of these wonderful classes.  We thouroughly enjoy the opportunity to share ideas and to encourage and nurture each other as we learn and grow as artists.

Our  6 week classes were developed to fit all levels including beginners. No matter where you stand with your skill level you will be able to create original artworks with pride in the finished projects.  

 We've posted the next sessions for Watercolor and for Oil Painting.

  • Adult Watercolor with Jeanne McLeish meets 9:00am-11:00am on Wednesdays. Six week sessions run September 25  through October 30 and November 13 through December 18.  
  • The Painting with Oils group, led by Laura Staten will meet Noon-2:00 pm on Wednesdays.  The first six week session runs August 28 through October 2.

 Both classes meet in 6 week sessions.  To register please email or call 317-437-0102

 Painting with Oils

Wednesdays from 12:00-2:00 pm. Beginner & Intermediate for Adults. Class meets in 6 week sessions. The next session begins August 28, 2013. A supply list is available at registration. This workshop class is $90 for 6 weeks.

 With a series of simple, easy to follow sequential exercises you will learn how to mix oil paint with control to get color that contains the proper value and intensity that you need in your paintings. This what "painting" is essentially: observing a color and then being able to mix paints as needed to relate properly with the other colors in your painting. Emphasis will be on the importance of dominance in shape, value, and color. We will cover various paint applications, brush work, and techniques. This class will give you the foundation you need to get more enjoyment out of future painting classes.

Students are encouraged to paint subjects which appeal to them and to enjoy the company of fellow artists as they develop their own painting style.


Introduction to Watercolor with Jeanne McLeish

Class meets in 6 week sessions. Next session available September 25, 2013. Group  meets Wednesdays from 9:00-11:00 am.  A recommended supply list is available. This workshop is $90 for six weeks.

This class covers basic techniques, materials, and terminology. Demonstrations, personal instruction, and group critiques will be used to increase the students understanding of color and design. While this class is designed for students with little or no experience, it would also be helpful to any artists wishing to review and brush up their skills. Students will move from practicing techniques and painting single objects to painting simple still life and landscapes.
