Jerry Salinas graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago with a degree in Illustration and Fine Arts where he studied with Bill Parks. He has been working as an illustrator since the mid-1990s for many ad agencies and his work is represented in Chicago and New York.

He balances his interest in illustration work with his love for fine art. Jerry is a member of the Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts, where he studied with Romel de la Torre, Clayton J. Beck III, and various visiting painters. Jerry now lives in Phoenix, Arizona pursuing his passion for oil paintings. Going from painting a few hours a week to several hours every day is pushing his work to a new level. He is also teaching the Oil Painting Foundation Studies at the prestigious Scottsdale Artist School.

Class Description:

How to paint anything in any color medium

In this class, we study proportions, values and color temperature. We will take any subject from a portrait to a still life or a landscape and break the subject down into a simplified plan.

The first step is drawing from how to measure to see the subject in shapes. Then the values what are they, less is more and how to see them. Finally color temperature, the artist knows it is not the color but the temperature that matters. Please bring a reference or some will be supplied digitally. Class is open to ANY medium.
