The Berkeley Arts Council is offering two virtual art classes in October and November via the Google Zoom application. Instructor Judith Becker will present “Creative Techniques for Painting Landscapes” on Mondays, November 16, 23, 30; and December 7 from 6:00-8:00pm. In this 4-week class, students will discover interesting, even unusual, ways to reinterpret a landscape photo. Using the same reference photo for all four class sessions, participants will select exciting color schemes, redesign the composition through cropping and highlighting, eliminate uninteresting elements, change the focal point, and explore how to abstract the original reference photo.
Pre-registration is required. For more information, a list of materials, class prices, and to register, visit https://berkeleyartswv.org/instruction/#zoom.
