Teens & Adult Studio Class

Whats included? charcoal pencils, paper, drawing board, brushes, pallet knife, pallet paper, canvas, liquid mediums (oil paint not included)

What do I need? an eagerness to learn, strong desire to create art, the ability to relax while having fun, and a membership!

This class offers teens and adults a place to begin the study of core fundamentals needed to create artwork of exceptional quality for any purpose. The program begins with charcoal exercises that introduce students to working with value - we create with value, not line. Once you're comfortable with the tools we start applying them to photo-realistic rendering done from photograph - here you will develop your eyes, patience and quality control. Now that the bar is set high, we will begin observational study or drawing from life - you'll learn to create accurately proportioned drawings, further developing your eyes and hands. Once you grasp the process of life drawing, its time for painting! Students begin working in grayscale, always relying on value to create form, not color or line. Switching between painting from life and working from photographs we will slowly introduce color.
