Drawing from Life

$52

with Hattie Stiles

Calendar Apr 29, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 4 weeks

During this four week introductory course, we will explore some classic drawing techniques using contour lines, shading and blending to create a sense of three-dimensional form using shape and value. We will begin with some "warm-up" activities and then work from a still life for the duration of the course. The instructor will help the students develop a compelling composition, accurate proportion, rich shading with a focus on realism. Materials fee of $15 payable to instructor at class.

Geode Painting

$29

with Tara Finlay

Calendar Mar 6, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

If you like bling, crystals, sparkle, and color, this class is for you. We'll make a work of art based on a geode or agate slice using real crystals, tinted resin and other embellishments. 18+ only due to working with the resin. If you are sensitive you may need to purchase a respirator mask. The area we will be working in is ventilated and the resin does not have a scent.  If you have crystals you want to use, you can bring them. Small points work best, or small tumbled semi-precious stones. Wear old clothes and bring an apron. First night: Design your geode painting, apply the crystals and tint the resin. The resin will cure before the next class. Second night: This is the night to fix any issues you may have had with the initial design, and to embellish the surface of your geode painting. Kit fee $30 payable to the instructor in class.  First class meets 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and second class meets 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
