Painting with a palette knife is like sculpting with paint. Students should be prepared to use a lot of paint in a thick, loose, abstracted style, editing out a lot of detail. Atmosphere, color mixing, brush control, value choices, composition and much more will be discussed. This class is fun and can be messy with instructor demonstration. Lots of Q&A time. Feedback will be given throughout class time when needed. Students will be able to complete a small painting.  Barbara offers a critique via email after class is complete and students have had time to touch-up their painting.

Barbara Bailey-Porter holds a Masters of Fine Art Degree and is a lifelong oil painter.  She has taught painting at The Academy of Art University, Cabrillo College Extension program, DeAnza College, as well as at Santa Cruz City Schools. Barbara began seriously studying painting at age 17 with, then well-known, local plein air painter/instructor Jon Blanchette. Barbara is 5th generation Santa Cruzan.
