    Teaching Artist: George Apotsos

    Do you have keepsakes hidden away in a drawer? Small items in memory of the person who gave them to you or originally owned them? Turn these memorable items into works of art by assembling them within a shadowbox. Teaching artist George Apotsos will guide participants through a series of workshops that encourage storytelling and stimulate the creative process. Completed artwork will be used to paint a painting using a photo-transfer. No painting experience required.

    Teaching artist: Jim Bongartz

    Recommended for ages 14 - adult. You can easily learn the basics while using acrylic paints! Students will complete a paint-along study the first 3 weeks with the instructor. Afterwards, bring your laptops to paint from your own uploaded photographs or images captured off the Internet. Of course, printed images are suitable for use as source material too. Students will explore traditional blocking-in methods while developing subject matter using expressive color, contrast and brushwork. After observing demonstrations, students will start off creating studies to learn basic techniques in color mixing and applications for building volume and space. The instructor will offer critiques to assist with constructive problem solving while exercising our vocabulary for the painting process. Supplies are provided by the student and a list will be sent one week prior to the start of class. The bulk of the investment of supplies will include paints, a few brushes, a canvas (first canvas provided). Level: Beginner thru Intermediate. 

    This class is also offered to adults only Wednesdays, 1 - 3:30 pm.

    Teaching Artist: Dorothy Hoeschen

    Painting en Plein Air - All levels.
    There is no need to have ever painted en plein air before, but a basic knowledge of oil painting is recommended.
    The fastest way to improve your painting (especially landscape painting) is to paint “en plein air” (in the open air). The richness of color and light our eyes see cannot be captured by a camera and there’s no substitute for the knowledge and experience you will gain! This class will explore the many possibilities of painting outdoors. In addition to oil painting in general, we will discuss kinds of equipment, the supplies needed for painting in the great outdoors, time saving tips, ways to capture the mood and “sense of place” and the pitfalls and rewards of plein air. A supply list will be provided.
