Something new! I'm trying out a blog for the students in the Confident Painting Class at the Des Moines Art Center.
I will check this every day for any comments or questions. If you have a question, please add it to the comments and I will answer in a blog form. Also feel free to share any websites, books, or other inspirations that come up. That way we are all a community of ideas and can learn from each other.
Please check this blog on the weekend before a class. If I have any materials you will be needing or any other information about the class, I'll post it here.
In this class I'll be drawing from materials found in the following book:
Mastering Composition: techniques and principles to dramatically improve your painting
The author is Ian Roberts.
As we go along, there will be other painters we will use as well as inspirations.
Handouts for the class will take the form of a page on this website. You may find it by going to:
confident color class tab
A syllabus is posted on the page. That way, you will be able to look ahead to see if there is anything you will be needing in the future. As the session goes forward, I will be adding to the syllabus. You will know what is new material as it will be posted in color.
I'm excited about using this form of technology to enhance your learning and our communitcations in the class.
See you next Wednesday!
