Drawing

Good draftmanship provides the artist with the solid understanding and foundation on which to build and grow into other mediums. The simplicity and versatility of drawing make it the perfect medium for learning the basic artistic concepts of composition, spatial relationships, modeling form and understanding light and shadow. Using charcoal and graphite we employ several techniques to encourage personal style. All levels welcome. 6 week session

Oil Painting

This class is designed to provide a basic foundation with which the student can explore this rich and versatile medium. Individual style is encouraged as well as the proper use of materials and understanding various techniques. Create a painting in stages with an emphasis on a strong value study and underpainting.. Learn color mixing with a limited palette. All levels welcome; drawing experience strongly suggested. 6 week sessions.

Color Theory

The missing link in many artists education, color choices are often left to guessing and luck. To really know color and understand its dynamic relationships and interaction, is to harness the most universally recognized and powerful elements of art. We will learn the basic principles of color, how to mix all colors with the three primary palette and how to make any color you see. 6 week session.
