Painting is a journey of discovery, of yourself and of the world. It is mostly joyful, at times frustrating, but absolutely worth the effort! The more miles you travel, the more you will discover your talent, and the more your eye will see of the beauty of the world, not to mention the wonderful people you will meet.  

In this 8 week class you will learn what you need to get started.  We'll focus on the essentials: materials and equipment, how to mix color and how to approach a blank canvas.  We'll explore the language of shape, value, color, texture and edge, and different visual approaches from light and shadow to local tone. We'll discuss resources for inspiration and growth and learn about best practices for moving you forward on your journey.

 For a well-rounded experience, students will paint from photographs, from still-life set-ups and from models. Each week there will be a brief slide show and lecture and then get right to painting. There will be homework and it will be FUN!

Laura Shepard moved to Nashville recently from Colorado where she studied full time for 5 years at the Art Student's League of Denver under some of the top artists living today in that area including Quang Ho, Kim English, Mark Daily, Kevin Weckbach, Mitch Caster and Molly Davis. She  has had her paintings juried into national shows where her work was recognized with awards of merit. She is a member of Oil Painters of America, The Portrait Society of America and the Chestnut Group.
