Draw & Paint with Lucas - HOW TO PAINT LIKE THE MASTERS (All Levels)

  • $180.00


Join Catherine Lucas at the Visual Arts Center (VAC) and learn to paint like the old masters. This class guides you through the process of developing a painting using the traditional techniques of indirect painting.  Begin with a drawing, transfer to a canvas and develop into a monochromatic underpainting. Apply thin layers of paint and glazes to achieve the luminosity and depth of the old masters. Work from your own still life setup with objects of your choosing. 

HOW TO PAINT LIKE THE OLD MASTERS - Beginner: $180 (VAC Members $144)

6 WEEK CLASS: Wednesday, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
