First Lesson: Painting an object
In this lesson we will paint scarlet cherries and learn how to create shade and reflection of an object as well as how to create interesting textured background.

As an artist we learn to customize our artwork and use different colours to create a unique artwork.
In the lesson, we will try to create a portrait of your favourite pet. In case you don't have a pet - you can follow instructions and create a unique Picasso style portrait. Learn to use unexpected creative painting styles to reflect the character of your pet.
If you do have a pet please bring a photo of it to the class.
Second lesson: Picasso your pet
IN this lesson we will learn how to blend the colours and create soft transitions, we will also create trees and grass and different animals you can find on Safari. Some precision needed here - to create shapes of animals enjoying the sunset.
Fourth lesson: African Landscape
Third lesson: Copy the Masters
In this lesson we will repeat the Starry Night artwork of famous Van Gogh and learn a bit about his life and work. We will add creative twist to it - a boat and a few animals in it. As usual you can customize your artwork as you choose.
