Classes

🌱☀️🌿🌸 Everything has changed 🌸🌱☀️🌿

For now all indoor classes have been cancelled.  I hope we can return to the studio in the Fall but we will have to wait and see how things go as we move through the summer.  Starting next week I will be offering Nature Journaling classes on Thursdays and Plein Air Painting on Saturday mornings.  See details below 🙂

Nature Journaling – Beginning on Thursday, May 28th from 10am-1pm – $35 per class.  Materials – journal or paper pad, watercolor, color pencil, pen and ink, what ever you choose 🙂  I will be doing a demonstration of techniques from week to week.

The first class will be in my garden and future classes will be announced week by week. Even though my garden is small there are lots of little spaces to focus on for your journaling 🌷 Everyone please bring your own seating, masks and drinking water. Bring lunch if you want to have a little nosh 😉  We will be cautious to stay a minimum of 6 ft. apart and respect each others safety.

If you do not want to exchange cash or checks you can also use my PayPal.

Fundamentals of Drawing   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.
