This class will address various aspects of the painting process, including drawing, color theory, technique and composition. Our meetings will be a combination of instruction, demonstrations, discussions of historical and
contemporary examples and presentations/explanations of weekly studio assignments. Completing their work at home, participants will produce small paintings in acrylic on paper and canvas and be encouraged to share
their work each week. We will look at various sources and subjects, while different treatments – ranging from naturalistic to abstract -- will be considered. All levels of experience and individual direction are welcome.

scholarships & aid

FAVA reviews and considers all application for scholarship assistance. While we may not be able to provide a complete scholarship to all those who request it, we are committed to making our classes available to as many people as possible – regardless of individual financial circumstances. For this reason, it is important that all scholarship requests are received well in advance of the class starting date, so we may allocate our available funds accordingly. We may consider any of the following factors when determining eligibility for scholarships:

  • Annual family income
  • Individual or special circumstances
  • Whether the applicant qualifies for the National Free/Reduced Price School Lunch program
    (for students age 18 & younger)

**FAVA also encourages applicants to consider partial scholarship assistance, in which case the student only pays some portion of the class tuition.

All information will be kept confidential and will be used solely to determine the amount of scholarship assistance to be provided.
