Mondays: 3:45–4:45 pm for ages 7–11 years
Mondays: 5:00–6:00 pm for ages 11–16 years
Come join an exciting class learning a variety of art. I will be developing your child’s art ability where they are at and giving them an opportunity to try out different mediums so they can find what they will enjoy. We will be doing units in drawing, watercolor, acrylic, pastels, clay and mixed media. I am teaching fine art concepts and techniques with each lesson. We will be exploring a variety of subjects including landscapes, people, faces, animals, cartooning and perspective. This is a weekly class and you need to register a month ahead in order to hold your spot for that month.
Annie Salness—Farmer’s Market & Painting
One-Day Workshop: August 18, 10:00 am-3:00 pm
We’ll begin at the relaxed light-heartedness of the farmers market on Saturday morning at Cedar Mill Farmers Market. You’ll spend an hour taking in the atmosphere, music, smells, scenes, and people, and choose a colorful vegetable, fruit, or flower to paint. We’ll go over how to lay out your palette, choose brushes and use lighting and value in your painting. Then you’ll paint, with hands-on, personal instruction.
Leslie Boyce—Watercolor Elements
Tuesdays, August 14, 21, 28, September 11, 18, 25, 12:00 noon–3:00 pm
Join me for a six-week class to learn basic watercolor techniques as we practice painting different elements: flowers, skies, rocks/mountains, water, etc. We will experiment with different styles of each element using value contrast, color theory and principles of composition.
Brooke Walker-Knoblich—Color Theory II: Mixing Paint
Two-week course: Thursdays, August 23 and 30, 10:00 am–1:00pm
Brooke’s scientific approach to color tackles the Munsell chart and color wheel systems, examines how the human eye perceives color, and breaks down the behavior of light. Students can expect discussions and demonstrations on understanding the interactions and harmonies within specific pigments, choosing paint brands and hues, identifying temperature relationships, asking correct questions to match a premixed color, and achieving both vibrant and subtle variations with simple palettes. This second course in Brooke’s Color Theory Series focuses on color mixing.
Mary Burgess—Painting Portraits in Watercolor
Wednesdays, September 12, 19, 26. and October 10, 17, 24, 9:30 am–12:30 pm OR 6:00–9:00 pm
Let’s take the fear out of painting faces! In this class, students will be guided through the steps to understanding facial structure, proportions, features and skin tones while capturing a likeness of the subject. Each session will focus on one aspect of portrait painting and will include activities to reinforce important concepts.
Susan Pfahl—Copperplate Calligraphy
Thursdays, Oct 4, 11, 18, 25, 7:00–9:00 pm
Learn Copperplate Calligraphy! As the ability to refine metals grew, it became possible to replace square ended pens with pointed pen nibs. A series of cursive writing styles soon emerged. These styles are still used today for highly formal documents and invitations. Copperplate is the predecessor of the cursive style handwriting most of us learned in grade school. In class we will work to become comfortable handling the pen, and then tackle the alphabet—small letters and large, numbers, and punctuation. We will also play with flourishing.
