Over the years, I’ve been drawn to owls as a symbol of wisdom and mystery.  They’re so graceful as they soar through the night and they’re beautiful animals to include in your artwork.


My name is Jennifer Laurel Keller.  I’m an artist and instructor but what I really do is help people gain creative confidence.  I love painting animals, and the more experience we have with different types of animals, the more we understand them and can adapt them to future paintings.


In this class, Night Owl, we’re going to paint a barn owl in acrylic paint!  You’ll learn how to create a starry background, the form of this beautiful bird, and the impressive textures and patterns in its markings.


In the lessons, we’ll cover materials, mixing, brushwork, form, contour, contrast, texture, loosening up, layering, and creating details.  Every move I make is explained in the class and you can follow along at your own pace.  


This class is right for you if you want experience painting more types of animals.  I’ve had beginner and intermediate artists do really well in my classes.  The key is to have an open mind and understand that patience and practice make progress.  Even as a teacher, I learn new things every time I paint.  It’s all about exploring and having fun. 


Once you practice this, you’ll be able to make these techniques your own and bring them over to your future creations with more confidence, which means more fun!  So, are you ready to take flight?  Let’s go!
