Great Classes at Keizer Art Association

The students in Steve Kleier’s Wednesday Watercolor class are being treated to some wonderful instruction about color, composition, technique, and theory. Steve explains, in detail, about some aspect of watercolor painting such as perspective, people in paintings, conveying depth in a painting, light and shadows, atmosphere, etc. He then demonstrates the concepts by producing a painting in class. Students can follow along or bring a completed painting to the next class when Steve will provide an excellent positive critique with suggestions for improvement.

The following images are from a recent Wednesday Watercolor class. They show the progression of one of Steve’s demos starting with a value-study then finishing with a completed painting.

New students are welcome to the Wednesday Watercolor class. Please see our class list for details and registration information.

'Digital Art'

The KAA board has decided to have digital art judged in it’s own category. This is what most other art galleries in this area are doing.

Beginning January, 2019, we will have five categories of art to be judged each month (with the exception of the two hosted shows, McNary Show and Colored Pencil Show).

The five categories are: 2D, Photography, 3D, Digital Art and Kids’ Art.
