For the Advanced Painting II class we will be doing longer projects interspersed with some small ones. The final project is of your choosing. We would be mostly working on the final project for the final two classes.  For the final project people can either use a canvas to work with which I would supply for a fee that depends on the size the student wants to work with. The student can instead bring something from home to work on which can include furniture or another project they have always dreamed about completing.

Week 1
We will be doing a small re-introduction to colour theory and mixing of paints to start during this class. We will then be doing a project that will enhance our abilities with colour just to break back into the process of painting.

Week 2
We will be doing a 11x14" painting in a technique which we really enjoy or have admired.
For the latter part of the class we will be discussing and planning out the final project which we will be working on for the final two classes.

Week 3
After doing a warm up exercise we will be then start on our final - prepping the object and starting on it. 

Week 4
We will be peacefully working on our final project for the entire class.
