 Week 1
Lesson 1
🌊Ocean Wave
Starting with a giant wave we will use a monochromatic color scheme. Creating value can be difficult to achieve so I will concentrate on how to study the details and mix variations of blue to bring the crashing wave to life.
 Week 2
Lesson 2
🌴Palm Fronds
We will view the calm, clear ocean scene in the background through the large, wispy palm fronds in the foreground that give us that serene, beachy feeling.
 Week 3
Lesson 3
🏝️ On Island Time
What kind of activity is going on way out there on that island? We'll let our imaginations run wild as we paint the sunlight reflecting on the water and highlight the vegetation with that sun kissed color. Seeing the underwater rocks will add a new level of painting techniques to this work as well.
 Week 4
Lesson 4
🪨 Beehive Trail View of the Atlantic
Imagine taking the hike that gives you this unique perspective of the water below. The horizontal and vertical rock formations will allow you to utilize brushstrokes to create multiple planes and unique layers and textures.
 Week 5
Lesson 5
Details and Reflection
With a concentration on the final details, you will evaluate each of the four paintings and share your finished works of art with the option of an additional seascape of your choice with personalized advice given as needed.
This class is taught in English.
Students will gain skills in sketching, painting, color mixing, and layering to create dimensional and expressive works of art.
I have been teaching this and similar painting lessons for 20+ years to a variety of age ranges and hold a PreK-12 Certification to teach art in Pennsylvania.
