    Learn the basics of drawing in this eight-week class. It is perfect for absolute beginners who can't even draw a stick figure, though more advanced students may appreciate a refresher, too! We will draw from observation and from samples, and learn various techniques for improving our hand-eye coordination. You will learn that drawing is not a “natural” talent, but a skill that can be learned and practiced! No previous drawing experience is necessary. All supplies are provided, just come with an open mind.

    Painting loose with acrylics is a style of painting that focuses on creating expressive and free-flowing artwork. It involves using acrylic paints, which are water-based and dry quickly, allowing artists to work in a spontaneous and intuitive manner. In this class, you will explore different brushwork techniques, such as using broad strokes, cross hatching and splattering. These techniques will help you create dynamic and energetic compositions. The class will also cover color mixing and blending techniques. Additionally, you will experiment with various tools and materials to create texture and interest in your artwork. This may include using palette knives, sponges, or even unconventional objects to apply paint to the canvas. Throughout the class, you will have the opportunity to experiment, take risks, and embrace the freedom of painting loosely with acrylics and have a lot of fun!
