The Yaquina Art Association is sponsoring a series of skill-building classes for painters of all levels — from beginners to advanced. Classes will be held on Monday afternoons, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., beginning March 18.
The cost is $20 for the four weeks — the cost is the same whether a person attends one or all four sessions. Materials will be provided for the first class. The classes will be held behind First Baptist Church at 208 NW Sixth St. in Newport. The instructor will be Colleen Caubin (colleencaubinart.com), an award-winning artist with local, national and international juried shows.
The classes will give participants the tools to take their painting to the next level, giving them a firm, understandable foundation to use on their own. It’s suitable for all painting media, including pastel. These skills are the basis of any good painting in any style. Each week, the group will address one main skill and learn how to apply it in their work. The last week it will all be put together in a live painting.
Some materials will be provided in class, but students need to have their own paints and a good surface to paint on, or some will be available for purchase in the class for $2 each
The schedule of classes is as follows:
The class size is limited to 15, so people are encouraged to sign up early by contacting Ken Hartwell at [email protected].
