For ages 13 to adult. Instructor is Emily Thomson.

Over 5 evenings, we will compare the properties of three distinctly different media with guidance and practical application. You will select a reference photo and create three separate works of art based upon that photo; one in soft pastels, one in oil paints, another in acrylics. Through the process, students will learn the basic techniques and supplies needed to get started in these media, and gain a better understanding of their variations in color blending. This class is the perfect overview for the beginner who wants to compare options, and would make a wonderful foundation for portfolio studies for experienced students. Bring some reference photos you find appealing. The instructor will supply choices, too, and advice in your final selection. Materials will be provided via supply fee. 

Register by June 30 to avoid $20 late fee. Call 703-330-2787.

Course fee includes $30 Supply fee.
