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.

    This in-depth painting and sculpture camp explores how color can be mixed and applied to create vivid and vibrant art. This class focuses on self-expression and student-centered art, while offering starter projects to get each camper's creative juices flowing. Paint pouring, color-based optical illusions, and color symbolism are just a few of the ways students will push the boundaries of color. A materials fee of $20 is due to the instructor at the first class.A supervised break is available for students taking both morning and afternoon camps; students should bring their own lunches.

    Students taking this workshop will be using quality studio grade materials and streched canvas to create a painting of their choice and subject matter. Students should bring several photos or objects of their choice to the first class to select a subject for a final painting. We will start with paper to size the project and create several thumb nail sketches for our studies and proceed to the easel to paint. Students will try several brush types as well as a variety of mediums for effects with acrylic paints. All styles of painting will be acceptable from realism to abstract, depending on the student's choice of subject matter for their work. A materials fee of $45 is due to the instructor on the first day of class (an itemized list is available upon request). For more information, please contact the instructor at awallstudio@gmail.com. Students are welcome to bring music to class.
