Introduction to Traditional Zhostovo Painting

06.07.19 at 10:00 AM
Museum of Russian Icons
203 Union Street, Clinton 01510
Website
Members $125, Nonmembers $150

Learn to paint the Zhostovo style from one of the world’s leading authorities and teachers. This three project course is designed for painters who have never painted this style before or who want a refresher class to hone their skills. Daisies, cornflowers and a classic rose with an ornamental border will be painted. DecoArt will provide the Americana acrylic paints to be used in the classroom. The students will learn some Zhostovo history, how to set up your painting space, about painting supplies needed, the use and care of brushes, how to properly prepare a surface, how to transfer a design to the painting surface, when to use opaque and transparent paints, and some basic strokework. 

Students will also receive an introduction to the stages of the traditional painting - base painting, shading, and highlighting. There will also be a lesson on the beautiful ornamentation that adorns Zhostovo works. Added to this experience will be the opportunity to walk through the exhibition of many unique and beautiful examples of Zhostovo painting never before seen in one location. Students will leave full of excitement and ready to create many more paintings. The class fee includes complete written instructions, line drawings, colored worksheets of each stage, and three days of classroom instruction. Students will also be given access to a recorded version of the class in Tricia’s online classroom, where lessons can be reviewed or repeated. There is an additional surface fee, plus the brushes and all of the supplies needed may be purchased in class (except for a short list of household items). Students must have the required sable brushes, or purchase them in class. The class is designed for adult painters, and some previous painting experience or teacher permission is required. Please contact me with any questions.
