CLASSES:

OBSERVATION DRAWINg class

 

Tuesdays, January 16 - February 13 (4 sessions- no class on 1/23)

10:30 am - 12: 30 pm  Instructor: Susan White     $80

Whether a beginner or an avid sketchbook keeper, this class will provide exercises in strengthening your observational drawing skills. We will be working from life, drawing objects in our environment, learning that to draw something is to truly know and see it. With mostly pencil and charcoal, we will focus on the use of line, mark, and value for ways to add depth and interest to your work. Susan's goal is to create both community among participants and confidence in your own individual mark.

Introduction to Painting & Color Theory class

Tuesdays, March 6 - April 10 (5 sessions)

10:30 am - 12: 30 pm  Instructor: Susan White    $100

Master painters know that with every painting there is more to learn about color. We’ll begin simple with the basics, then move towards a more complex understanding that reveals how exciting color study can be! Using acrylic and watercolor, we’ll have fun first getting comfortable with basic painting techniques. Then we'll move through some color study exercises that we can later use in our own individual paintings, on paper, canvas, and board. Students will have much freedom in choosing their own topics for painting, and are encouraged to bring in any independent work for feedback. Previous painting experience helpful but not required.
