Learn from Lynne
Rewarding and Accessible Classes for All Levels
COVID-19 NOTICE: Due to the need to social distance, I will be offering remote ZOOM classes for the fall. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
In this virtual 6-week workshop students will learn how to construct a landscape painting using acrylic paint on canvas. There will be discussion of how to mix infinite colors from a limited palette, how to get certain effects with various brushes, how to make a painting “sing” using Joseph Albers’ color theory. Students will work from photograph provided, giving them plenty of time to work on their painting in class and during the weeks between sessions. Demonstrations will allow students to follow along with the artist step-by-step. After each class I will email you a photo of the session’s progress and a recorded video of that session.
Lynne Adams, with her calm compassionate manner, breaks down the painting experience into a joyful process–clear, simple, and rewarding.
I have always maintained that I cannot draw and therefore never attempted to paint. However, using this method, I was astonished that I painted a landscape scene from one of my vacation photos within two hours and everyone that has seen it loves it.
This is my third session with Lynne on the adventure of discovering the exciting world of painting. I have learned so much from her about painting landscapes. She has a very clear way of explaining color theory, mixing colors, interpreting the landscape and how to transfer it to the canvas. I have completed several good (in my opinion) paintings that people seem to enjoy. She creates a light, happy atmosphere and encourages conversation about each others interpretation of the common subject. She answers questions about her much admired paintings. Thus we learn how to accomplish a desired effect. She brings a lot of energy along with her extensive knowledge to the class. People will learn much from her along with having a very enjoyabe and memorable experience.
This class sounded really fascinating, but as the time approached I began to feel really anxious. I knew that I could draw fairly well, but the idea of painting always seemed out of my realm of possibilities. But within minutes after the class began, my confidence began to grow exponentially and I came away with a painting I could hardly believe was mine, after only two hours! Lynne is a wonderful teacher--gentle, encouraging, competent. I’m inspired now to continue painting!
No experience necessary! Unleash your creative self and start that brush going! In this workshop you will learn to paint shadows on snow. This is a step-by-step class, in which you will follow along with the teacher and come home with a finished painting. Participants will build their painting skills in a supportive and fun environment, giving them a foundation to continue on their artistic journey.
Join me for a day in my studio for the following workshop.
