    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course shows you the basics of painting and defines your skill better.before i started this class i didn't notice how hard it is to paint from a still life for 6 hours a day .Once you do it for a few weeks you will start to get the hang of it .Color is introduced slowly in this class ! the first 3-4 weeks we only worked in black and white and I think that helped me a lot !one downside is that supplies are so expensive ! I spent over 300 dollars on artist grade paint ,brushes ,brush cleaner,turpentine and towels.If you have the money to spend than you don't have to worry about it . Home work wise our school required 3 hours of home work a week . for each 6 hour class you take .

    Course highlights:

    I am currently enrolled in this class and its great .because color is introduced slowly you can focus on the actual thing you are painting .My painting has improved tremendously in the pass 5 weeks I've been there.The class right now we are focused on introducing color in temperature and I think its helped every one improve.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to what the teacher says they are there to help you improve .critics are going to happen in almost every class be metal prepared for it. Always do your Home work practice makes perfect.
