Ruben Coy
All Levels
Wednesday, 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM
July 12 - August 16

In this modern method, we use oil over acrylic paint. The painting progresses first in layers of acrylic, followed by layers in oil. The simplicity of this method makes this class ideal for the beginner and a boost for the advanced student. Using this layering technique gives the student the leverage to create fine-tuned paintings. The finished paintings have a unique luminosity and a sense of depth.
Please note: enrollment for this course is limited to 10 students.
