This painting class is geared toward students who want to learn how to paint landscapes in acrylic. Lessons designed for all levels of painters will be set up as an introduction to painting landscape. We will focus on step-by-step processes for how to develop exciting and provoking pictorial images/paintings. 

The classroom will open for arrival at 5:30 pm and the instructor will demo the lesson at 6:15 pm.

The class will be broken up into parts including focusing on composition, thumbnail/value studies, careful study and analysis, painting palette, and of course painting! We will look at examples of paintings in class and learn from historical examples. We will also focus on setting up an environment and methodology to painting that will ensure success and build confidence while also improving your speed of painting.

About the instructor: Cole is a painter and visual artist based in Portland Oregon. Nature is the biggest influence in Cole’s art especially now that natural disasters are ever increasing with climate change. Making observations, interpretations, and communicating the forms of nature that he thinks should be preserved and cherished is his goal. He wants to create excitement about preservation through visual interest by bringing the feelings and emotions associated in nature. Cole studied illustration at the Academy of Art in San Francisco and has a Bachelors of Arts in Art History from Portland State University.
