AUGUST 29 • Capturing Light: Sky Painting


AUGUST 29 • 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Capturing light can be one of the most challenging and rewarding parts of painting. Understanding how to paint the glow of a sunset, or the reflections on the water, light (or lack thereof) is usually the most important part of a piece! It’s what creates dimension and brings everything to life.

In this single class, we will study light and shadow, and you’ll learn techniques of color mixing and observing so you can paint some of your favorite moments in time.

Images will be provided, however, if you have something specific you’d like to paint, please email Vanessa ahead of time.

AGES: 16 years and up - no experience necessary!

MATERIALS: All supplies are included.

INSTRUCTOR: Vanessa Frost

As a full-time artist and owner of MUSEjar, Vanessa finds inspiration and joy in teaching art. Art is a language that is often forgotten about and it's amazing what happens once it's tapped into. Her background is fine art and film production, with a degree from The University of Vermont. She loves mixed media and currently works mainly with acrylics, but she is constantly exploring and experimenting with all other mediums.

NOTE: All classes require a minimum number of students to run. Please sign up in advance to help avoid cancellation due to low registration. In the case of a cancellation, you will be notified prior and receive a full refund. Please read our class policies.
