Fundamentals of Art Class

 

 

 

Always wanted to learn how to draw but didn't think you could? Or are you an experienced artist wanted to firm up some fundamentals or try something new? This is the class for you!

For beginners - we start with simple still life set-ups to learn fundamentals of drawing. Yes, it will be a lot of cups and bowls and apples at first, but it is necessary to use simple objects in order to be able to understand the tools you will be given. These tools will let you draw anything you want once we're through with the basics. We move on to learning tones to create volume and depth. From there, work continues into portraits to pull it all together. From there, you tell me where you want to go. It will take 3-6 months to go through these levels, depending on your comprehension and attendance. But it's worth spending the time learning the basics so you can then apply them to everything else!

For experienced artists - It's up to you as to what you'd like to do. Always wanted to try watercolor? Need to brush up on color theory? Want to create your own comic book? Need help learning anatomy and get better at drawing people? Let me know and I'll make a plan so you can get better!

Although this is a group class, every student works at their own pace and receives individual attention. Class size is limited.

Class is open to everyone ages 15 through 115. All you need is enthusiasm!

Class fee: $45 per class, discount available for monthly payments in advance

Wine & Watercolor

 

 

 

This event will be all about learning some really cool techniques to make your watercolors better, whether you're a beginner or an experienced artist.

We'll work on this beautiful winter scene using tape as a "resist" and salt to create the snowy background. What is a resist and what does salt do to watercolor? Well, that's what we'll learn in this class!

We'll explore a variety of resists such as masking fluid, using crayons to create a really cool effect, and then learn how to do a variety of washes that will make your watercolors more interesting.

It'll be a fun class with lots of new information!

As always, I will provide all the supplies, including wine, sodas and snacks. You just need to bring your enthusiasm!

Perk & Paint!

 

 

 

 

 

We'll create these beautiful koi fish in this class! It's a great way to learn about layering and using the tip of your brush to create some delicate details. This painting is a really fun project for both beginning and experienced artists alike! I will guide you through each step, including your drawing.
