Drawing and painting classes for students ages 14 – adult. This class offers older teens and adults a place to begin the study of core fundamentals needed to create artwork of exceptional quality for any purpose. Craftsmanship and the skillful use of materials is encouraged. Emphasis is placed on developing the student’s ability to accurately observe proportions, edge, and value relationships. This ensures an understanding of the structure and reading of work so that student work communicates their intended meaning, regardless of medium. I highly suggest artist begin with drawing before learning to paint. This allows students time to develop a foundational understanding of light, shadow and edge as key components of form, mass, volume, and space. However, I understand that some students will prefer to draw and others to paint. For this reason, I will allow students to work in their preferred medium. Some instruction is given to the class as a whole, but most instruction is given on an individual basis. The class structure moves from direct instruction to guided mentorship as each student progresses.
