Online Painting Studio
with Andrew Sookrah
Thursdays, October 21
to November 25
3 to 6 pm (EST)
Level: Open to all skill levels
“I found it engaging and really liked watching the demo by Andrew. I felt quite engaged—in some ways even more so than in face-to-face classes as I felt I could see “up close” what Andrew was doing in terms of paint mixing and brush strokes”
This virtual studio experience will be taught live through the Zoom platform by artist Andrew Sookrah. Sookrah will offer live demonstrations in acrylics, as well as critiques and advice on students’ individual work. Topics covered include, mastering perspective, reflections in water, patterns, texture, skies and clouds, dramatic light, depth and negative space, with special attention given to basic drawing techniques such as composition, colour, texture and effective brushstrokes. Follow along as Andrew Sookrah guides you through three distinct landscape paintings from start to finish using photographic references.
Please note ticket sales are non-refundable and classes are not recorded.
