Focus on Palette Knife
Artistic Growth comes from experimenting and taking risks as well as knowing basic fundamentals and thefoundation of drawing and painting. Having fun is also the key to loving painting, so put on your “let’s get creative hat” and join the event.

This class is for all levels, new or currently enrolled students. It is highly recommended students have some experience with drawing and oil painting. Water based oils are also welcome. You will be painting Alla prima style. Brushes will be used along with Palette Knives but the focus will be on how to use the palette knife. Students will be guided by a demo given by Candace and then she will continue to help each student while they are working on their own painting. Candace will also be working on her painting so you can see the process as she goes along.

Please bring your own canvas. A canvas 16 x 20 or just slightly larger will work. You may bring your own paint, but you may also use the studio oil paint and supplies.
