Introduction to Painting with Armand Cabrera

Cabrera web banner

This class is designed for 2 types of individuals: 
• Those who are interested in painting but need the basics to get started.
• People who haven’t painted in a long time and want to refresh their knowledge.
The class will cover all aspects of painting.  I will show you how to set up and care for materials, the proper use and handling of those materials, and the basic steps for creating your own art. I will demo every day and discuss my approach to drawing, color mixing and paint application. A fun, non-competitive environment.
