The class Oil Painting for Young People: Still Life and Landscapes will teach principles of traditional oil painting while giving each student individual instruction so they can achieve confidence as they learn and explore the world of classical painting. Emphasis will be on painting directly from life as students will learn to “see” the beauty of the prismatic flow of light when objects are illuminated in Ridgewood’s beautiful North Light studio. Students who wish to paint landscapes will be given the opportunity to paint from plein air color studies in order to observe effects of the atmosphere and learn basic principles of landscape painting.

Art history will be wrapped into lessons by supplying samples of great Master works that relate to the still life set ups and landscape paintings. Sue Barrasi graduated from the School of Visual Arts then pursued her studies in traditional oil painting at the Art Students League. She studied the prismatic palette at the Ridgewood Art Institute with master painter John Phillip Osborne. She has received awards, grants and residencies, has been commissioned by publishers and advertising agencies to create artwork for various films, television and publications. Her work has been juried into events around the country and has served as juror for National Juried shows. She is a resident member of the Salmagundi Club, life member of the Art Students League, Fellow member of the Amercian Artists Professional League, member of Oil Painters of America and is represented by several galleries in the tri-State area.
