What can I expect at a painting class at Michael's?
« on: February 20, 2013, 03:06:28 PM »
So, I'm trying something different and have signed up for a painting class at Michael's.  Specifically, Landscape I-Painting by Grumbacher.  I was in a rush, and the lady at the customer service counter barely knew how to register me for the class, so I didn't ask then.

Are these the kind of classes where everyone paints the same scene?  This would be fine with me, as I first need to learn technique.
Or are these classes more freeform and I should go with a photo in hand or at least a good vision of what I want to paint?
The supply list they gave me starts with a "kit" and asks for a couple of additional colors, which leads me to believe it's the former.  I thought I'd ask here, though, for someone with first hand experience.
It's not what we gather along the way that matters.  It's what we scatter.

No experience, but I don't think it'd hurt to bring a photo along in case it ends up requiring it.  A picture's pretty small, light and easy to transport I'd think.
