Start Date: September 11th
Time: Thursdays, 7pm-10pm (PST)
Duration: 8 Weeks
Sam has perfected an approach to picture making that works for any level of experience. The absolute beginner will rise quickly and start creating bold energetic paintings within the first couple of week...s. The experienced professional will learn the simplest way to break down a scene and only paint what is necessary to communicate the story. We will not be covering tightly rendered paintings, but instead focus on quick color sketching to tell the entire story.
