About the Class:

In this class, you'll learn the basics of making and mixing colors, basic fundamentals of composition, drawing, values, edges, chroma as well as how to start an oil painting (making the initial shapes and colors using 2-3 colors). You'll learn how to select a focal point and paint outward - what's important in the composition and what requires less attention. Demonstrations by the instructor will show how to create composition using forest / woods, rocks, and water (and rocks under water), including Jim's technique for treating water in a scene and how to use a palette knife. The class is for beginner to intermediate oil painters.

About the Artist: Jim Hallenbeck

Growing up in Catskill, NY, Jim was constantly drawing. This led to being the art editor of his high school yearbook, majoring in Fine Arts at SUNY Plattsburgh, and obtaining a BS in Art Education from Florida International University of Miami in December 1979. His dream of being an art instructor then artist, however, was put on a 35 year hold as he was hired by IBM in September 1979 in Boca Raton, FL and transferred to Raleigh, NC in 1999. Through the years during his IBM career, Jim continued to paint as time allowed. Now retired, he pursuing his life long dream of being an artist. His oil paintings include primarily landscapes, city scenes, and local Raleigh landmarks. He is a studio artist of Artspace in Raleigh, NC, and a contributing artist of the Mattie King Davis Gallery in Beaufort, N.C. 

Jim is an associate member of the American Impressionist Society, the Oil Painters of America, the Pastel Society of America, an Elected Associate Member of the American Artists Professional League, a member of the Pastel Society of Southern California, and, as of August 2023, a signature member of the Pastel Society of North Carolina.
