Painting Class for Carvers
with Kelley Stadelman
Kelley produced and started teaching this class in the Portland and Salem areas starting Oct 2023. She will continue to teach it as there is interest. You can signup on this interest list and be the first to get information when a repeat class is being scheduled, perhaps around your own availability.
Kelley is a skilled painter and carver with a wealth of information about finishing.
Do you need help finishing your carvings once the carving is completed?
Kelley can help you learn some techniques through painting that will give your pieces more depth and appeal. “Painting” may mean only mild shading or may lead to adding color. The techniques to achieve a beautiful, finished project can be learned at her upcoming class. The best way to learn is with brush in hand. Learn shading, highlighting, stroke work and other techniques that will help achieve a beautiful, finished carving project.
Each person will attempt, practice and trouble shoot the exercises below in the class. Work sheets will be given out to take home to practice these techniques. The circles show stages of shading around the edges and highlights in the center which make a flat shape look dimensional.
