Class Description for both OLLI-URI and The South Kingstown Guild:


Designed for beginner and intermediate students, this studio/class setting offers a relaxed environment in which to explore different acrylic painting techniques that will bring out their individual styles. Bring a photo/reference material of your choosing and create a painting guided by Jen Ferry. Individual attention is given to meet each student’s pace. You’ll learn tricks that will add depth, drama, and texture to your painting while experimenting with brush strokes, color choices, and composition. The goal in this all-encompassing class is to gain a working knowledge of acrylic paints while exploring your own creativity. A supply list will be provided to registrants before the first class.


For the first class come prepared with the class materials, an open mind, and the desire to create. Beginner students will start with color mixing exercises that recreate the color wheel. Intermediate students will start their paintings with Jen Ferry’s guidance on how best to  translate their reference material onto the canvas.
