Drawing, Painting, Printmaking

Beginning/Intermediate 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 Pam Franc

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.

Drawing the Human Figure

Another class title that seems to say it all! This class is open to all levels, beginners and up, as we explore different approaches to drawing the human form. The focus on this class is not on anatomy drawing but on using the human form to create expressive drawings. Sometimes you are your own model (self portraits) and other times a dressed model will be available to the class. Typically a class that uses charcoal and paper, this class may explore other mediums as well. A lab fee of $30.00 covers the cost of chemistry, tools, paper and ink for instructor led projects.
