Drawing   Learn to draw what you see and render it in form and value.  You will develop proportion, perspective, sensitivity in line and shading while   building volume on a two dimensional surface. All levels.

Art History  Each month we learn about a different period of  art history and specific artists of that period.  We discover what each artist had to contribute to the evolution of art, and  then benefit from understanding how each master can influence our  development.

Painting   Choose oils and/or acrylics  to develop your own unique style.  Whether you are working on your own goals or want teacher led exercises , there’s no better way to get better than to continuously paint, paint, paint.   Learn to  SEE  color and improve  your understanding of color theory, warm and cool colors, hard and soft edges, values , perspective in realism or abstracted expressions. All levels.

The Creative Art  Experience: Experimental Techniques  

No experience but want the fun ??  Or want to just loosen up???  Here’s a chance to just  PLAY with acrylics  and water colors    Use cut paper  and collage, try out interesting techniques like print making, batiks, alcohol ink transfers, experiment with different acrylic media…..and just find your inner  artist?  Thursdays afternoons.

Treat yourself to an opportunity to connect with your own   powerful inner beauty.  Find expression  and  joy as you  develop yourself and your skills.
