The Berkeley Arts Council announced two new classes for May to be held at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg.
Jean Kellogg will be teaching “Acrylic Textures & Technical Know-How!” on Wednesdays from 1-4pm starting May 4. There are certain textures that can make, or break a painting…a few of these can be found in Flowers, Feathers, Foliage, Fur, Fins and Hair! Of course, there are many more, but having an idea of how to execute them successfully can make a great difference in expressing your subject matter. The class runs for six weeks through June 8.
Judith Becker offers “Creative Approaches to Painting Landscapes” on Thursdays from 1-4pm starting May 19. Learn to paint landscapes with that WOW! factor. Working from the same landscape reference photo of your choice each week, instructor will present different approaches to paint the same landscape scene but with vastly different results. This is a unique way to push your own art into new dimensions, all the while learning composition and color theory beyond the usual. You will surprise yourself with your ability to advance your own art expertise. The class runs for four weeks through June 9.
