|A Walk To Remember (pastel)|
September 18th, 2013 will be the first Watercolor and Drawing class on Wednesday morning from 9-12. I have found over the years that many students of art ask to 'bypass' the drawing stage. I feel like this is kind of like skipping learning the alphabet when you want to be a writer. Drawing is not that hard if you know a few tricks to learn to see. Tracing is a tool and should not be a crutch if you want to continue to improve your painting ability. Since realistic watercolor painting requires planning I thought incorporating learning to draw would compliment the class. We will do some of both each day with an emphasis on painting.
On September 19th I will start my oil painting classes on Thursday mornings from 9-12. In this ongoing class we will explore and dive deeper into color experimentation, value, technique & composition. Since my classes are limited to 5 students, everyone will get plenty of individual attention. I also like to gear my classes toward what each student wants to, or needs to learn. I am open to different ideas.
I can give you more information including costs of classes if you send me a message. There is a discount for those signing up for a month at a time. Depending in availability, you can start at any time. I earned a BFA in studio arts, have been a professional artist for 15 years and have been teaching for over 10 years.
