Paint Nite: Johannes Vermeer - Girl with a Pearl Earring
This virtual painting class is designed for intermediate painters BUT if you are up for a challenge anyone is welcome to join in!
The Dutch Golden Age
Learn all about this iconic portrait by Dutch Baroque painter- Johannes Vermeer while you learn the fundamentals of portraiture. We will take a deep dive into the history of portraiture and what makes The Girl with a Pearl Earring so special that it has been dubbed the "Mona Lisa of the North".
For this session Aisling will walk you through the painting step-by-step over zoom. Our virtual classes are hosted using a professional film set up for a high definition virtual class. The class takes place between 7:00pm-9:30pm Eastern Time (Canada). It is advised to pour a small amount of each colour on your palette and have paint water ready before instruction begins at 7:00pm. The first 10 minutes are for questions about set up and some quick introductions to the process. Be ready with your brush in hand at 7:10 :)
You will receive a zoom link. Make sure to have Zoom on your device. Feel free to shoot us an email with questions: email@example.com
This class does not include a kit. A recommended list of our standard kits is below.
- Canvas - I use 16x20 inches but any size will work! Keep in mind if you use a bigger canvas your painting will take longer.
