  • dA Center for the Arts Painting Studio Saturdays, 2‐5 PM

    Instructor: Angel Villanueva

    Ages 15 and up.

    The painting course at the dA Center for the Arts is designed with flexibility and individual artistic growth in mind. The studio provides an instruction‐based painting environment in which students can choose and carry out their own assignments, exploring a variety of techniques in acrylics and/or oils* under the instructor’s guidance. Goals will be tailored to each student’s needs and skill level, with emphasis on successful concept development, composition, and development of personal style.

    The format of the class will be that of an ongoing atelier. We welcome developing artists, ages 15 and up, anytime. No previous painting experience is required. Number of sessions will be up to each student depending on their goals and projects. Students are required to provide their own materials.

    Price: $15 per session.

    $120 for 10 sessions if paid up front. 

    cash/check/credit card (we use the square)

    NO REFUNDS. This will encourage you to come to class.

    *Please note we will not be covering watercolors in this

    Students can begin with a basic set of materials, and add to their tool kit as needed.
    We will be painting on canvas. Stretched canvas is preferred for formal projects, canvas sheets taped to a solid substrate are a great for exercises. Recommended canvas size for beginners is 12” x 16/18”.
    Each student may require different brush sets depending on their goals. We recommend starting with flat shader brushes; Golden Taklon brushes for oil paint, Bristle for Acrylics, in an assortment of sizes, as well as small and medium fan brushes.
    Starter set should include the following: Titanium White
    Ivory Black
    Cadmium Red Hue*
    Cadmium Yellow Hue* Phtalo Blue
    Phtalo Green
    Raw Umber
    Other pigments will be recommended on an individual basis.
    Note: do NOT buy, or use in class, the actual Cadmium‐pigment paint, as it is highly toxic and requires special handling. The fake one (It’ll read “Hue”) is just fine.
    Other Materials:
    Painter’s palette(s).
    Small, medium and large palette knives (plastic ok). Odorless turpentine for oil painting.
    Graphite Pencil
    Pencil Sharpener
    Kneaded Eraser
    Containers for Liquids
