Oil Painting 6-Week Course

Thursdays, January 5, 12, 19, February 2 9, & 16 6:30pm–8:30pm
(6 sessions)

Instructor: Linda Harold

Join Instructor Linda Harold and learn the basic ‘how-to’s of oil painting. If you have painted before, join us for a refresher and quickly move on to working at your own pace. We will begin with different types of brushes and how to use them, trying out various brush strokes and the vocabulary of color, how and why to use a color wheel, mixing paint and cleaning and caring for your brushes.

There will be discussions about light, lines, perspective and keeping it simple. Each of you will add to the flavor and depth of these classes with your questions and different experiences.

Our first painting will be a teacher demonstration with students following along. We will practice brush strokes and blending techniques and we’ll learn ways to fix mistakes that may happen. Students will begin to get comfortable with making sure their paint is the correct consistency.

Supply list will be emailed upon registration.

Exhibit: Anything Goes

ExhLogoHoriz

November 3, 2016–January 24, 2017, Blakely Hall
Opening Reception Wednesday, November 16, 6–7:30 pm

Curators: Monique Catino and Anna Macrae
Guest Juror: Fred Lisaius

We are delighted to present Anything Goes — Within Reason once again this holiday season at Blakely Hall. This juried exhibition invites artEAST Members to submit 2-dimensional artwork for consideration. The subject matter is left wide open, to attract a broad range of material from some of our best established and emerging artists.

This year, we are also honored to have Fred Lisaius, working artist and art educator, as our guest juror. Fred will select three art pieces from the show to highlight and talk about during the reception. Fred is interested in exploring our connection to the natural world and each other, and is represented locally by the Patricia Rovzar Gallery. He is also an art educator and teaches classes in watercolor, acrylic and drawing. He says it is very rewarding to share his knowledge and passion for art and the art-making process.

It is always exciting to visit an “open” show: there are often some unexpected treasures to be discovered, as the work is not chosen to fit a particular theme. Please join us to see what your talented artEAST members have been creating.

Participating Artists

Gail Baker, Pamela K. Beer, Jill Drllevich, Diana Grant, Wanda Hickman, Pamela Holderman, Bonnie Johnson, Hiral Joshi, Jerry Kaufman, Kristi Kincheloe, Andrea Lewicki, Vikram Madan, Priyanka Parmananad, Lia Santini, Ann Elizabeth Scott, Cathy Simpson, Shelley Stroeve, Jan Tervonen, Katie Knoll Weaver, Season Yoshida


Thank you to our sponsors: the Issaquah Highlands Council, 4Culture, City of Issaquah, Protingent Staffing, and Rowley Properties.
