Levels: All Levels Welcome!

Offered: One Sunday Workshop: September 10th, 2:00pm to 6:00pm

Instructor: Toaa Dallo

Location: Santa Cruz Art League

This fun one-day painting session is for everyone. Beginners are welcome, and more advanced painters will increase their skills. You can use acrylics, oils, watercolors, pastels — whatever you like. Toaa will provide several great Cloudcapes for you to choose from, or you can bring your own.

Cloud scenes are a great lesson in color theory, composition, and brushwork. We will explore key issues of painting and art-making, including value and contrast, volume and light source, style and storytelling — with an emphasis on fun.

Toaa will be painting along with the group, demonstrating and explaining methods and techniques. And everyone will receive individual attention and guidance also. Students will focus on one or two paintings, and everyone will be invited to share their work with the group, for friendly feedback.
