EWC highlights upcoming Paint like the Old Masters class

The Community Education office at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington is offering the following class.

Learn how to Paint like the Old Masters
Have you ever wondered how the great European painters of the past created their astonishing illusions of light and shadow using oil paint? They didn’t have any secrets, it was all about technique.  It is a bit of science mixed with a lot of artistry.  This class will be held on Tuesdays, March 13 through April 3, from 5-8:00pm. The cost of this class is $45.

Come and learn this fascinating technique with EWC Art Faculty John Cline.  Prior experience working with oil paints is helpful, but not essential. Throughout the course, you will learn the technique by recreating a still life painting by the 17th Century Dutch painter Adriaen Coorte.

You will need to purchase 6 tubes of paint (oil medium), brushes, a mixing knife and canvas.  Kits will be available for purchase at the EWC bookstore.
