“Wicked Skies” – Sunday, February 17th
TIME: 1.00 – 4.30 pm
LOCATION: Anastasia Mak Art Studio, 5006 N Hermitage, Chicago IL
COST: $65 (all materials included)
It may not feel like it at all yet, but spring and summer are on their way back! And here in Midwest, that means a new season of rains, colorful sunsets, and temperamental weather swings. In other words, Mother Nature will be showing us her Wicked Skies! Lets put them on canvas, shall we?
In this 3.5 hour workshop, we will paint from photo references and:
-build up our skies with a variety of shades and tones;
-learn how clouds reflect the light in the atmosphere;
-go way beyond basic white and blue, and take bold, expressive approach!
Beginner painters can be a little timid with their initial brush strokes. To combat your fear, we will practice our crazy ways on paper, before moving onto working on canvas. You’ll learn how to increase the sense of contrast and develop better understanding of light and shadows on the clouds.
You will work alongside the artist (that’s me!) as she paints in front of you while explaining her techniques. As most of my workshops, this class is designed to unlock the creative talent of people with ALL skill levels, so if you have not painted before, have no fear! You will walk away understanding how acrylic painting is constructed, what techniques are used to make the colors “pop”, and take home your very own original creations! As always, this workshop will encourage you to create a unique painting, instead of merely copying artist’s work.
Canvas size for this workshop will be 12×12 (plus loose watercolor paper for extra practicing)
Maximum class size – 8 people
