Class Descriptions:

 

Drawing, Oils and Pastels

The Drawing, Oil & Pastel classes are ongoing classes.

Each new student starts with 8 weeks of charcoal drawing.  We want to be sure that everyone has a good understanding of the fundamentals of drawing.  We will teach you how to break down the complexities of a drawing to basic shapes and then to develop it into a more finished detailed piece.  You will learn how to measure proportions and relationships and to develop values.  It is important to feel comfortable with drawing before starting to paint.  You will complete 3 finished charcoal drawings.  Each drawing gets a little more complex as you go.

The next 8 week session includes a color wheel one week.  You will learn why you do it and how it will help you in your painting.  Then you can choose to go into Pastel or Oils.  You will pick your own references and the teacher will help decide which will be the best to start with.  She or he will show you how to start a painting and how to develop it.  Every painting presents new problems or new challenges.  You will continue to learn how to problem solve and how to eventually become more expressive in your work.  It is a life long learning process.  There will be some demonstrations, special class projects on occasion, and working from life is encouraged.

Beginning students work in the same class with more advanced students.  It works well.  Each student is given individual instruction at his or her level of development.  Everyone is supportive and the new students learn a lot by watching what the advanced students are doing and the advanced students understand the fears of the new student, because they all started at the same place.

There are occasions where a few of the charcoal steps are skipped, depending on what level of experience a person comes into the studio.  A portfolio must be presented showing previous and current work in order to skip some of the procedures.
