For centuries, oil painting has been the preferred medium for creative artistic expression. Do you want to paint beautiful, expressive paintings with oils? Whether you can draw or not — yes, you can paint, and Tri-County Community College (TCCC) has a personal enrichment course that will help you make the world your canvas!
Tri-County will be offering 12 oil painting classes at three locations this fall in Clay and Cherokee counties starting August 25. Classes will be taught on the Main Campus in Peachtree (21 Campus Circle), the Andrews Office (on the Andrew High School campus), and at the Clay County Senior Center, 196 Ritter Road in Hayesville.
Personal enrichment instructors Grace Hawkins and Kandy Barnard have between them 30 years of teaching experience conducting both beginner and advanced oil painting classes.
During these classes Hawkins and Barnard will provide individualized attention and instruction that has become popular with both beginning and intermediate oil painting students.
Beginning students will learn basic painting principles and techniques including color mixing, shading, and highlighting. More advanced students will continue to develop personal styles while renewing skills in basics and color mixing. Students are required to furnish their own brushes and canvases.
