The first class will be devoted to discussing easels and supplies, creating some drawings, and identifying subjects to paint. There will be ample time to work on a sustained painting or to paint a number of quick sketches in the manner of the Macchiaioli painters. Students should bring the following SUPPLIES: Sketch pad, pencils, and eraser; tripod easel; basic paints that include white, black, and primary colors; brushes and painting surfaces suitable for the medium of your choice.
