MADELINE FAUST - Second Line Sashay


I made a trip to New Orleans with my family.  On our travels I found this public artwork of a very New Orleansian theme: the second line.

BRENT RIDGE - NAC CLASSES 12.06.17


Hello Class,
This is our last class of the year and session!
Time goes so fast.
Let's finish with energy and a splash of color - Let yourself use the things we've talked about and apply them without thinking so much - be impulsive and trust your intuition.

Here is Joanne Greenbaum:

Feel free to bring back some favorites you've made along our journey this Fall, and we can reflect on some successes of our painter's work.

BRENT RIDGE - NAC CLASSES 11.29.17


Hello Class!

Welcome back from the holiday.
This week consider how you are using your color.  Try out one painting to make that uses all the deviations of a single color, not monochrome, but let that color dominate and variate from cool to warm, from light to dark so that its not even apparent that you're working in one color.

Here is an example of this that I recently completed in my studio for you to use as an inspirational model:

Brent Ridge, Rusted Yellow, 2017




See you in class.
