    Facilitator: Rebecca Downing Pelley

    Intermediate to Advanced students will enjoy instruction tailored to personal interests. These two hour classes are limited in size and designed to suit student goals and ensure progress. Students select art media with which they are most comfortable to pursue individual directions.  If you've already taken a variety of classes in drawing and painting but seek more, or if you've tabled your passion as life intervened, we've got a home for you here.

    This class assumes a comfort level with drawing and/or painting and is not for beginners.

    Facilitator: Sue Abare

    This class is for those first timers wanting to experience watercolor or someone who wants to expand beginning skills. Have fun exploring the enchantment of water and paint in their irresistible dance. As with all painting, a little drawing experience is helpful. Feel free to bring supplies you may already have or wait for suggestions on what you may want to purchase. Some basic supplies are furnished. We will discuss preparing paper to paint, brushes and their technique, some color theory - but mostly we will jump in the water, and do it!
