Classes

General Class Information:

Daytime classes are usually 3-hour periods unless otherwise noted, and are held in the Studios on the upper and lower floors of the OSA building. Limited parking is available adjacent to the building.

Drying racks are available for students to leave their paintings while in process. This is a tremendous help when transporting larger or wet paintings. We usually have room to store still-life objects as well.

As well as quality instruction from experienced artists, OSA Members have the opportunity to show their work in the OSA Gallery. For exhibit schedules and guidelines, see our Gallery Events page

Fundamentals of Botanical Drawing with Janet Parker
Instructor: Janet Parker

Sundays, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Class Starts on Apr 14, 2019
Location: Downstairs Studio A

Spring term: April 14 - June 16 (no class May 19) no drop-ins

9 Sundays from 1 - 4 pm 

Class 1 - Introductions. We’ll talk about direct observation, a bit about history of botanical art, what’s going on in botanical art today,
etc. share some books, ASBA journals, Oregon Botanical Artists, etc. Then we’ll dive into the “invaluable value scale” - practice seeing
and creating continuous tone, and edges vs. smooth value changes, while getting acquainted with various grades of graphite pencils,
and how they interact with our paper. In class students will work on the various value scales, and for homework they will complete
those scales.
Class 2 - Shading, (aka toning) adding textures - making mini landscapes
Homework will be finishing the mini landscapes we started in class
Class 3 - Studying basic geometric shapes as they relate to drawing plant forms (and everything else!). Sphere, cylinder, cone, and cup
or bowl. We look at a cube too, but it’s less common in nature.
Perspective - basic theory of linear perspective. Using a plexiglas plane to simplify drawing in perspective.
Homework: practice drawing ellipses. And use the plexiglas plane and / or other measuring tools to make a line drawing of a cup in 2
views.
Class 4 - Perspective + Light on Form. Discussion of the “imaginary” light source.
Tone line drawings of a cup using the idea of the imaginary light source. Homework: if you have time, find an example of each shape in
nature (cylinder, sphere, cone, cup) and draw them from a few different pov’s, and tone using the imaginary light source.
Class 5 - Perspective + Light on Form continued - including light on convex and concave forms. We’ll use a white plastic spoon to
observe light on convex and concave forms, and practice toning those shapes.
Class 6 - Putting it all together, and observing a simple subject (tulip, apple, pear - appropriate to season). In this class we’ll look at
other tools for direct observation and capturing accurate perspective (besides the plexiglas plane). I’ll demonstrate using rulers and
calipers. Homework: tone the subject using the imaginary light source, or feel free to try lighting your subject.
Class 7 - Looking at leaves (1 of 2 classes on leaves) - observing the very different features of a common front and back of a leaf. Using
leaf rubbings to understand venation, and employing shading to the convex & concave shapes on the top and bottom surfaces of a leaf,
to suggest a sense of volume.
Homework: Continue toning the front and back of your leaves.
Class 8 - Looking at leaves part 2 - observing and drawing how leaf shapes twist and turn on a branch. We’ll work on a step-by-step
method for drawing a curled leaf. We’ll also spend some time drawing a section of ribbon, shaped into a curl, or curls.
Homework: Draw more ribbon curls, and tone them for light on form, or - draw several views in your drawing pad suggesting floating
leaves, and tone them
Class 9 - Last class - Possible subjects of focus for this last class: 1) continue working on leaves; 2) learn techniques for drawing a root
system (leeks are the ideal subject for this; other options, onions and scallions); 3) Simple composition of overlapping subjects such as a
cluster of 5 or more grapes. Also possiblyl- some tips for working in the field and maintaining a sketchbook of your botanical studies.
Homework : Get out there and draw!

We continue working on these aspects of portraiture while introducing: wet into wet painting using thicker paint and brushes of different shapes and sizes, using brushstroke to define structure and form.


Section 3: April 1st – May 13th (no calss April 8th)

We explore additional textures such as dry brush, line and transparency, learning to control emphasis using detail and value to direct the viewers’ gaze, and, finally, ways to speed up the whole process and paint faster.


Alla Prima is a wet-into-wet oil painting technique where subjects are painted quickly and in one sitting, like in plein air painting. This 18-week course is designed to develop Alla Prima Portrait skills from the ground up. Take all three sections or choose the ones that reflect your skill level.


This 18-week course is appropriate for novice to intermediate skill levels. It will stress observational skills and construction, rendering anatomy, and composition. We’ll explore how drawing relates to painting, color and value, the effects of light and shadow, tonal methods, various modeling techniques, and how to manage a palette and mix colors.


Drop in students are welcome, but the classes are sequential.

Explore Your Potential In Acrylic Painting with Wayne Jiang
Instructor: Wayne Jiang

Mondays, 9:45 AM - 12:45 PM
Class Starts on Mar 25, 2019
Location: Downstairs Studio B

Spring Term: March 25- June 3 (no class April 8, 15, and 22)

This unique class is designed for those new to acrylic as well as for experienced acrylic painters. Build confidence as you learn techniques that take advantage of this versatile, practical, and non-toxic painting medium.

With a master guide by your side, Wayne will spend time getting to know you and your goals. With lots of individual coaching and step-by-step instructions, Wayne will help you take your painting to the next level no matter where you are in your artistic journey.

We’ll explore classical, impressionistic, and modern painting styles and apply these styles in portrait, landscape, and still life paintings. By gaining color theory and composition knowledge, your painting process will not only be enjoyable, but also successful. By the end of this class, you’ll complete artworks suitable for framing.

The more adventuresome students will learn advanced old master techniques such as layering and glazing. And Wayne will help those who want to develop their own personal style or paint their own subject.

Another added bonus of this class is the guided museum tours. In these tours, Wayne will point out many of the subtle old masters techniques. With plenty of time to talk about these techniques, you’ll get ideas how to apply these techniques in your own work.

Don’t have acrylic paint or canvases? No worries. High quality acrylic paint and painting surfaces will be provided for a small fee.

Oil Painting: Focus on Eyes with Joanne Mehl
Instructor: Joanne Mehl

Mondays, 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Class Starts on Jun 10, 2019
Location: Downstairs Studio A

June 10 and June 17

Many artists struggle with painting the eyes in portraits and figures. We tend to paint our symbolic idea of eyes, rather than what eyes actually look like.

Working from the model, we will look at the shape of the eyes themselves, how they are placed in the skull, and the surrounding anatomical structures. Our goals will be to size the eyes correctly, and accurately see their shape while rendering a profile, three-quarter view, and straight-on view of the model. 

Bring the painting or drawing media in which you are most comfortable. Dry or wet media, black and white or color are welcome. 

Note: This class is about structure and seeing. We will not be delving into color in this class

Painting the Nude in Oils Using the Zorn Palette with Joanne Mehl
Instructor: Joanne Mehl

Tuesdays, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Class Starts on Jul 30, 2019
Location: Downstairs Studio A

Many artists struggle with rendering flesh tones when painting the figure – too many color choices can lead to confusion and frustration. But working in a more limited palette allows greater control in color mixing, and also increases the painting's color harmony.

Working from the live model we will sharpen our figure painting skills while using the Zorn palette of Titanium White, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, and Ivory Black.

We will use the Zorn palette to help you:

  1. Simplify color mixing. With fewer colors, it’s easier to choose the best color to add to any given mixture.
  2. Better understand how your colors work together.
  3. Achieve color harmony. Fewer colors means fewer color variations.
  4. More easily see and control values.
  5. Learn to recognize and use warm and cool color temperatures.
