CLASS FOR TEENS AND ADULTS
This class will introduce students to working on the 2-D surface through a wide variety of mediums. Students will investigate composition, color, texture, and mark-making, and explore materials ranging from charcoal and graphite to ink and watercolor. Through the introduction of traditional fine art techniques, students will be allowed to adapt these methods to fit the needs of their own personal expression, having the opportunity to render objects and create images both figuratively and abstractly. Techniques include observational drawing and painting. Japanese block printing, cyanotype, creating paintings with unconventional and natural materials, and intaglio monotyping. Experimental sketchbook and journaling exercises will keep the visual discoveries flowing outside to class to supplement in-class projects. Works-in-progress will be discussed in supportive critique settings. Excellent for all levels of experience from beginners to professionals. Studio materials will be provided, but please bring your own sketchbook.
