Painting for Absolute Beginners

Ninalee Irani

Have you always wanted to become a painter but aren’t sure how to start? This six-week course is designed for students who have very little to no painting experience and would like to learn techniques to create fresh, vibrant paintings of any subject in oils or acrylics. Ninalee will introduce you to your art supplies, from brushes to canvas, gesso to varnish. Progressive exercises will be given to explore composition, value, color theory, and shape — helping you discover your innate ability to “see” as an artist. Working from photo reference, students will wrap-up the course by completing a painting of their choice. In a positive, casual, and supportive environment, you will receive one-on-one guidance. This course is open to anyone who will be painting in oils, water-mixable oils, or acrylics. Website
