Registration deadline: February 3

In this six-part class, expand on the fundamentals of oil painting! Classic exercises in tone, form, and color provide clear direction and focus during class time, with guidance for continuing studies at home. Emphasis is placed on developing representational skills. Works from the Museum’s Collection serve as examples.

Instructor Tony Corbitt, Jr. is a professional, self-taught artist living, working, and teaching in Asheville. Inspired by the French Masters of the late 19th century, he often favors plein air painting, emphasizing tonal relationships and sound draftsmanship with broad sweeps of a loaded brush. His inspiration is rooted in the American South; be it painting the Gulf Coast, sketching an alligator, or capturing the ever-changing shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains, he can usually be found outdoors, fully immersed in his surroundings.
