Painting Momentum with Anna George    Tuesdays  1-4     Jan 9 through Feb 20

7 weeks      $150 members  $170 non members

Surround yourself with ideas, ambient light, and open your paintbox! My style is to offer you constant support at your easel, where you are painting what you love. Whether you’re a beginner or hold an MFA, we take a fresh look together at painting fundamentals, and have fun.

A brand-new artist? Are you starting a new painting or revisiting a piece? Work your individual style in oils or acrylics, abstract or representational. As you develop your image you’ll learn to skirt common pitfalls in this convivial class that has run for eleven years.

I enjoying helping you develop good sequencing in the painting process. We simplify new and age-old painting concepts through discourse, demonstrations, and handouts. Learn about form, light, composition, values, atmospheric perspective, color mixing and placement, mediums, etc. When painters request a special focus or demo I’m happy to oblige.

Connect the dots of composition, color partnering, and specialized technique that fit your style. You choose source material; I recommend an 8×10 photograph. In the studio we share as we go, support each other, and bring some levity.

Having been a full-time artist for decades, I bring that experience to classes. In my years teaching I’ve witnessed a lot of success and feel proud of the artistic growth. Beginners are welcome! We encourage each other, and the final class is all about that, and part festival–a showing of work/pieces in progress with scrumptious things to eat.

After exhibiting in the U.S. and Italy, in galleries, museum shows, etc., I continue to show abstract and representational work. And I offer painted silkwear. See my pieces locally and at annageorgeartist.com and at annageorgeonline.com. Ask about a current show of my work nearby.

On Tuesday afternoons, for a few fine hours, we let go of the outer world and immerse. Beginners can get a materials list, a consult, plus guidance choosing quality materials. Reach me at 925 783 9000 with questions/enrolment needs. Become a current RAA member ($10) and then enroll well ahead of the start date, please. Welcome–see you in the bright new year!
