Beginning Acrylic Landscape Painting Class on Wednesdays in June at River House

with Jenny Keyser



only 2 seats left

In this painting course, Jenny will lead you through the fundamentals of landscape painting from composition to finished piece.  

You will learn how to break down a composition into readable shapes and patterns, how to mix colors as well as how to apply different painting applications all within an art historical framework.  Jenny’s goal is to work with each student from where they are and help them take the steps to get where they want to be.

Jenny is an award-winning, independent, St. Augustine area artist and has shown her work internationally in galleries and museums.  Her formal education includes a BS from Vanderbilt University, a certificate in Museum Studies from Northwestern University and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Supplies Needed:

A few images of landscapes you might want to paint - printed out

a 16”x20” canvas,

a painter’s palette (do not get one with dividers as it is not conducive to mixing colors, paper plates can work quite well),

a variety of round and flat paintbrushes,

a general set of tube acrylic paints including black, green, yellow, red, brown, blue and two tubes of white or one large tube (white is used more than the other colors),

a rag for clean-up,

a plastic cup for water,

a pencil and eraser,

a plastic trash bag to transport your piece,

a sketchbook or white paper to make preliminary sketches on. 

Class sessions will be held on Wednesdays, June 7, 14, 21, 28 from 11:30 to 1:30 at the River House (179 Marine Street, St. Augustine 32084)
