Painting Classes at Maryland Hall

Some psychologists have compared the experience of complete concentration and absorption that you get while painting to a mindfulness practice. Painting develops creativity, strengthening the mind and triggering dopamine activity in the brain. And, with our Teaching Artists, it's fun! Whether you're just picking up your brush (or picking it up again) or you are an established artist, there is a class for you to learn and grow from at MD Hall. Get outside in a plein air class, paint from a live model, or lose yourself in a landscape in an upcoming class. Classes are offered for all ages.

    Portraits Workshop is a 2.5 hour, 5 week class for students with some drawing experience to learn how to draw from their own photo references. Materials needed are very limited; the majority of the work will be done in pencil with the option to incorporate watercolor. The instructor will teach about supplies, her technique, each feature of the face, and composition. Students are encouraged to come to class with some ideas of how they'd like to portray their person. Demonstrations by the instructor are included. Models are not a part of this class.
