Beginning Oil Painting

Hannah Miller

Thursdays- March 23 - April 27

Explore color, texture, and form in this six-week beginning oil painting course. Students will learn how to stretch and prepare a canvas, set up a palette, and learn basic color theory and color mixing techniques which will best produce clean, vibrant, space-shaping colors. Students will also experiment with painting mediums and work with different brushes and palette knife techniques to discover and develop one’s own personal style.

 

Hannah Miller, a Carlinville native, holds a BFA in photography and painting, and an MFA in photography and video and has attended Illinois State University, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and Rhode Island School of Design. She is a big believer in the positive impact art and creativity can have in rural communities, and is super excited about the MAC opening just a half-hour away from her home!  

 Painting holds a special place in her practice; it is a more hands-on approach to the meditative seeing, looking, and studying of color and the relationships of objects that she works towards in photographs.  The way that color can shape form in painting is a mystery that will never cease to amaze, and she hopes that she can share that sense of wonder with her students.

MATERIALS:

Paintbrushes 

Palette knives 

Piece of glass for palette- around 8 x 10" or largerWooden stretcher bars- can be made, not bought

QFest uses the art of contemporary gay cinema to spotlight the lives of LGBTQ people and to celebrate queer culture. The event will excite, entertain, and enlighten audiences of all identities.

A simple lunch turns into a darkly comedic catastrophe when Jasmine and Penn, a new couple with an uncertain future, find an anonymous suicide note at the home of the happiest couple they know. Punctuated with witty dialogue and performances as fresh as a spring salad, the hilarious and awkward unraveling of who wrote the note is a must-see. First-time feature director Carly Usdin was a producer of Logo Network’s lively “NewNowNext” on-air music series, and writer/co-star Brittani Nichols, who plays Jasmine, has an impressive list of credits, including a recurring role on the first season of “Transparent.”

SHOWN WITH: “With You for Life” (Shanelle Riccio, U.S., 2017, 5 min.) A high-strung woman with sidonglobophobia faces her fear of cotton balls head-on, thanks to her opportunistic (and not-without-her-own-quirks) girlfriend.
