Now offering weekly online Zoom art classes through Deanna Weinholtz Fine Art

Composition for Painting (level 1)

Online Zoom 3 Week Class $60.00

Monday's 6:30pm - 8:30pm -May 9, 16, 23














How many times do we look at a photo we would love to paint, but something just doesn't look right? This class will lead you through designing a composition that will make your painting more successful than the actual photo. Deanna will explain the elements of design and how to apply them to a composition. We will then use a photo supplied by the instructor to create better compositions and draw them as thumb nail sketches that can be used in a painting on your own or in the next level class that follows, "Applying Composition to Painting" level 2.


Applying Composition to Painting (level 2)

Online Zoom 4 Week Class $80

Monday's 6:30pm - 8:30pm - June 6, 13, 20, 27

Applying Composition to Painting (level 2) is a continuation class to Composition for Painting (level 1), please only sign up for this class if you have taken level 1 with Deanna. We will be using the thumb nail composition sketches we created in the level 1 class and you will be choosing the best composition to use for painting. Deanna will guide you through painting you landscape in watercolor. 



Applying Color Theory

Online Zoom 4 Week Class $80

Monday's 6:30pm - 8:30pm - September 12, 19, 26, October 3

A background in color theory will help you be successful in your paintings and eliminate a lot of the frustration that comes with mixing the wrong colors together and creating "mud". If you have some basic knowledge in color theory this class will reinforce what you have learned and take you through the next steps of applying those skills. For those of you that are starting out with color theory, I will  introduce you to the concepts of mixing colors, color temperature, what colors mix well together and what ones don't and why. We will then apply all of these skills in exercises you will want to keep in your studio for reference time and time again.

Online Zoom 5 Week Class - $100



















Representing texture in nature using watercolor presents a unique challenge. In this five week class we will explore many techniques to create rocks, moss, wood, grasses, sand, glass and an other texture that we can dream up. We will then apply our skills to a painting that incorporates many of these textures.

Online Zoom 4 Week Class - $80
















Adding a very distinct path of light and shadow gives a painting an added level of drama and interest. In this four week watercolor class we will put our own artistic spin on a photo to add more light and shadow to create a stunning composition out of an ordinary subject.
