Leffel shows students how many factors there are in creating a painting. From choosing objects to paint to setting them up to making sure the lighting is right, he goes through the complete set-up process. When he begins to paint, he shows students how to use brush strokes to create the effects he wants, how to choose colors and the kinds of paints he uses to create his works. Students will get to see how he begins the painting and carries it through to fruition in one concise film. Watch a preview clip.
