for beginner artists as well as experienced artists as we cover the basics
like how colors work together to create depth, distance, volume, and
emotion, but also dive into deciphering the subtleties of why Rembrandt,
Monet, Vermeer and many more master artists created such beautiful art,
and take those techniques they perfected and apply them to developing the
students own art. I often see a significant leap in many areas of the
student’s artwork level from the beginning of this class to its
Students will have the opportunity to showcase their work at the
CHAT Christmas Celebration and the Spring Showcase.
