Watercolor Painting:

This course is open to both the beginner who would like to discover the unique properties of watercolor painting, as well as the advanced student who desires to continue skill development.

This class will introduce students to the basic watercolor techniques of wash, dry brush and wet applications as well as some unconventional methods. Much attention will be given to the basic elements of design, drawing, and how to compose a painting. Subjects will include still-life, nature studies and landscape painting. Most classes will take place in my home studio and outdoors, with the possibility of working on location at other sites. Because of the small size of the class there will be opportunities for students to receive significant individual attention.

The course is given in 5 week sessions and continues throughout the year.

Tuesdays: 9:30am-12:30pm

Thursdays: 9:30am-12:30pm

Saturdays: 9:30am-12:30pm

Fee: $120 Materials for the first class will be provided. Information on additional supplies needed will be discussed at that class.

Call to find out the current schedule.

Summer Arts:

Treat your child to a summer program designed to enrich creativity and advance artistic skills in a noncompetitive environment. Students will explore a variety of media, including charcoal, pastel, watercolor, pen and ink, tempera and acrylic paint. The young artists will be introduced to the works of master artists and will be inspired to produce their own portfolio of work.

Classes will be held at my home studio. We will work outdoors when the lesson and weather permits. On the last class the students will have an art show. Family and friends are invited to attend. It will begin at 5pm. Refreshments will be served. On that day, students who wish may stay after the regular class to help set up the gallery!
