Full course description

Thursdays, 6/3/2021-7/1/2021, 6pm-8pm

 Instructor Joyce Nojima

During a fully synchronized 5-day workshop, students will learn the fundamentals of composition, perspective and lighting and apply that to paintings done in a sketchbook. Our visual renderings will be done quickly with a focus on improving fundamental painting skills and confidence. Workshops will begin with a live demo, followed with time dedicated towards practicing these methods and to answer any individual questions. No previous painting and drawing experience are required.

Workshops are taught online through Zoom and Canvas. Students will need a computer or smart phone with webcam and microphone, internet and web streaming capacity, and the Zoom application installed to their device. A device to capture images (digital camera, smart phone, or tablet, etc.) is helpful, but not required.
