    Geared for levels Intermediate to Advanced. Watercolor has the reputation for being difficult, but we are going to make it easier and maybe even fun. Take what you already know about putting paint on the paper and learn how to visualize and paint what you like. You will receive instruction on the simplification of subjects, value studies, and composition. We will learn to look at artists for inspiration, technique, and visualization of successful pictures including how to find a subject/picture. Your drawing skills will be enhanced as we go.
    Why do some paintings just look right?
    What makes a good painting?

    Grid journaling is a simple and easy way to create eye pleasing images that come together quickly and is creatively satisfying. It also sharpens your artistic eye and composition abilities. It’s an exciting way to try something new that doesn’t take up too much room (it’s done in an art journal) and it uses supplies that, for the most part, you may already have around the house. A bonus is that it is artwork that can be carried out in small chunks of time to accommodate a busy lifestyle. What you learn about Composition, Value, and Color Theory can be carried over into other art activities if you want.
    Grid journaling is meant for your own personal enjoyment with no pressure to frame it, show it, or subject it to any one else’s judgement or expectations. It’s only for you. If you can wield a glue stick, you can create a grid journal. Why should kids have all the Summer fun?

    You can easily learn the basics of painting while using acrylic paints! Students will complete a "paint-along" study with the instructor during the 6 weeks and complete color mixing studies and thumbnail sketches. Students will explore the traditional blocking-in method 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 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.

Prerequisite class: "I've Never Painted Before In My Life!". "... Let's Do More" is an Intermediate class for students who have enjoyed repeating "I've Never Painted Before In My Life!" and wish to continue their painting journey using the blocking-in method. Students will continue to develop color mixing skills with a focus on value, mid-tones and underpainting techniques. Group and individual critique will help to examine which techniques are working and what could be explored further. Students are encouraged to use photos and/or laptops or pads to display imagery/reference material.
    We will be exploring summer landscapes during this summer session class run.

    Color is powerful! Students will improve and inform their skills as painters by learning the importance of mastering color mixing formulas and by making effective color choices. They will develop deeper sensitivity to color through explorations of hue, value, intensity, proportion, and placement in their compositions. There will be investigations into the psychological effects of color. Presentations will include master painting examples that show how color can move us emotionally.

    This is an introductory studio course in drawing with an emphasis on representation from direct observation. Drawing is fundamentally about learning to see and transporting that vision onto paper through various mark-making techniques. The class will consist of in-class projects along with homework assignments that will supplement the in-class work. We will learn a variety of drawing techniques and explore the variety of drawing materials available. Besides drawing projects, the class time will also include critiques and short lectures.
