Drawing, Painting, Printmaking

Beginning Watercolor

Step by step instructions give you the skills to create beautiful works of art in watercolor. This medium can be very tricky, so we start with the basics of the color wheel, explore blending and shadowing, and painting three dimensionally. As you work through the class compositions, you will explore your own use of color and this beautiful medium. The $30.00 lab fee covers the cost of paper, brushes, water colors, and basic supplies. Class size limited to 10.Watercolors by Sarratt Art Studios Instructor, Pam Francis

Drawing Fundamentals

This is drawing basics for beginners and for those that feel they need a “refresher” course.

Drawing and Painting with Color

We think the title of this course says it all! Students in this class will explore color pencils, pastels, and various styles of water color while exploring the art of drawing. Designed for beginners, this class is open to anyone who’d like to spend time in the studio to relax and enjoy creating colorful works of art.

Introduction to Printmaking

There are a variety of techniques when it comes to print making. Some techniques require a press, others require some special chemicals, and some can be done with things that are laying around the house. From the basic mono print to the wood carved block to the more “modern” approach of photo silk screen you’ll be able to explore these techniques to create prints of your own design. This is a medium that is often used by artists that enjoy drawing/painting, book arts, or photography. A lab fee of $30.00 covers the cost of chemistry, tools, paper and ink for instructor led projects.Additional supplies will be available for purchase. Class size limited to 10.

Friday November 21, 2014 brought the close of Courage Unmasked TN. What a privilege to host the inaugural exhibit and fundraiser of this amazing art project! Thank you to all who volunteered their time, donated their masks after radiation treatment and a heartfelt thank you to all of the artists that transformed these masks in to statements on courage.

If you missed the exhibit or want to share it with friends, each mask and the exhibit are on a free mobile app called "Piggyback". It's available for free in the app store for ipads, iphones, and smart phones.
