Weekly Oil Painting Classes
with Kim VanDerHoek

This class is for beginning to intermediate level students.
 
If this is your first painting class then be sure to come ready to jump right in and paint! Each weekly class is different with a unique painting lesson or a specific painting exercise that will help you build a foundation of skills. Everyone wants to paint a pretty picture, but without first learning essential painting skills the pretty picture simply won't happen. Topics include: color mixing, creating shape using value, composition, focal point, color harmony, paint application, brushwork, selecting a subject, finding your own voice as a painter and more.
 
Class size is limited so that I can give each student individual attention. Each week we will work either from a photograph or from life. In class I teach an Impressionist style of painting, working wet into wet paint.

Cost: $160 per month
Location: Cannery Paints, 416 31st St., Newport Beach, CA 92663
When: Class meets every Friday 9:30 am – 1:30 pm.

A RoseArt Atelier “Foundation Drawing”, class is an essential class in our program that must be taken at least one time by our students and is most beneficial if taken many times. It also is a good choice for the first class to “begin” with if you are new to the studio. An artist of any ability can always benefit from going back to basics and our foundation classes introduce plenty of advanced and valuable concepts.

In this foundation class with a emphasis on using the medium of “Pastel” students learn what is taught in all of my foundation classes: How to see, how to simplify form, how to separate light from shadow and how to design and make decisions about their drawing on the fly.  All of these foundation principles are the essential building blocks for all representational drawing and painting and bring great value to visual artists. And these concepts apply to painting as much as drawing. In additional we will be working with COLOR as we are using Pastels rather than pencil. We will be starting out with value and will move into color as the concepts are applied and practiced.

This class will be taught partially in the studio and partially outdoors. (weather permitting with this winter of El Niño). As in all of my landscape classes…we will be working with color theory. Much emphasis will be on color harmonies, value, and how to control color to show form and light. Other areas of “art enlightment”, that will be taught are: brushwork, design, palette use, and lastly…finding ones voice artistically. There will also be some study of master painters with exercises to better understand how these painters utilize design and painting principles.

We will be working on larger scale studio paintings. (sizes 12" x 16" and up). Students will be working on subject matter of their own choice for this Studio class. Subjects can range from landscape and seascape, people, animals, architecture, floral or still life. Students will learn how to conceptualize a larger format painting for their independent study, how to best come up with a design and layout for their painting by creating preliminary sketches and color schemes that I will review with each student. We will also review how to best take photos for reference material and how to choose wisely from photo references they already have/own. All work will be based on original ideas and thus could also be a good choices for inclusion in portfolios for those students who are applying for an art related major or to a Art College.

"Spring In" Plein Air Tuesdays
Kristen Olson

8 Tuesdays "en plein air" beginning February 2nd, 2016 in the Bay Area with Kristen Olson 

Join me this spring for session 1 and learn how to paint a wide variety of landscapes.  Throughout the classes,  I will teach you painting techniques and how to "see as an artist".

You will gain confidence as you learn how to approach a wide variety of landscapes such as farms, gardens, beaches, sea cliffs, architecture and reflections so that you can go out and paint whatever your heart desires.

This is a plein air workshop so we will be painting outside at a different location each Tuesday.  
The class includes both painting demonstrations as well as individual instruction which will be personalized to the level of each artist.  Class size will be kept small to ensure that each student gets a lot of individual help at their easel.

Plein air painting is a great way to experience the outdoors and express your love for the landscape.  I find that the practice of painting outdoors on a regular basis breathes life into your studio work and creates a space for you to think more creatively about what to paint.  It lets you "experience your world through paint".  

We will meet at various locations around San Jose, if you need accommodations, let me know.  Sometimes we travel to locations that are difficult to get around.
The locations schedule for all classes will be emailed to registered students in January.  
This class is open to all levels of artists including beginners and to all mediums, demonstrations will be primarily in oil.   

The cost is $320.00 for all classes, you can register for this class with a $100.00 deposit, to register, visit the workshops page at

email me at
Kristenpaints@gmail.com for availability and a supply list.
