Classes

All classes will be online…until we are all safe again 😷

After running online classes for several months now and I admit to being surprised at how much we are able to share our work through a combination of an online platform, our phones and our iPads 🙂  It’s been a sharp learning curve but we find ourselves enjoying a gathering of like minded friends to work on art, share stories and just connect when being connected is so hard.  We all miss our friends and our lives but a few hours a week has proved to be a moment in the week that feels a little less disconnected.

Fundamentals of Drawing is cancelled at this point, hoping to reinstate this class when we are able to gather when it becomes safe. This class will teach the building blocks of drawing.  It is for beginners and those with experience who want to continue to polish their skills. Beginning artists will learn how to draw accurately and create dimension through light and shadow, you will also learn perspective and composition.  After learning how to draw in graphite you will progress to color and learn how to use color pencil with lovely results.  Please contact me via email for details. Class size is limited to 5 people and must have a minimum of 3 people to move forward.  For those with pet allergies I do have both cats and dogs in my home.
