For beginner to advanced students. We will work from nature and from memory, painting with oils, watercolors and /or pastels. We will work in a different place each day in the most beautiful areas of Truro. Beginner students will learn to paint and draw with light and color in order to have an understanding of form, proportion, mass, composition and a sensitivity to line and light. Advanced students will gain a greater perception of and ability to express the vast gamma of color and light in nature. All students will be given personal instruction to achieve their goals, learning the essential elements of painting with respect for their own personal, poetic voice.
