Classes start the week of September 12, 2022 and last 1 1/2 hours each week for 1 semester.
This class continues to train students how to draw and paint what is seen, rather than what the student thinks he sees. It improves right-brain problem solving skills, concentration, and seeing in context, through step-by step instruction. This type of instruction trains to eye, enabling the student to produce more realistic art and improves academic skills.
Students learn how to use graphite pencil to create portraits, draw and shade animals, and create perspective drawings, etc. They are taught to use watercolor paint to create landscapes, animals, and architecture, etc. Mixed media techniques teach students to use pen & ink with watercolor washes. I also teach my students to use oil pastels and color pencils with solvents to create interesting effects. Finally, I also teach students to use acrylic paint. Due to the limited time we have in a term, I do not teach all mediums in every term. (Materials list provided upon registration)
