Course Description:

As an element, earth signifies the terrestrial world. As inspiration for a painting class, it is associated with rocks and soil. Create “earth” textures to incorporate into our paintings or mixed media pieces, as backgrounds or textures within landscapes. Focus on a technique, such as crackle paste, rust patina, rock surfaces, or fertile soil each week, and expand upon the possibilities into either a step-by-step painting background or standalone piece.
