faceless.jpg

Thursday, May 10th and 17th | 5:30 – 7:30pm
$40.00 member | $45.00 public

Delve into the basics of acrylic paints and the human figure while creating a surreal landscape with local artist and long time Headwaters instructor, Terry Honstead. 

An artist first has to understand the rules before they can stretch them. It is often difficult to get proportions right, Terry will teach students about basic human form and how to place it in an imagined landscape. In this fun, two session course participants will learn about surrealism, simple rules about the proportions of the human figure, and how to capture a figure with acrylic paint.

Let your imagination run wild with your surreal landscape piece, and leave this class with one finished painting and many techniques. This class is for beginners on up – a fun experience for anyone who likes to imagine. 18+
