PRIVATE STUDIO ART COURSES
_______________________________________________________________________________________________



Course:    Advanced Design: Independent Projects (ADIP)

Prerequisites: Offered to mid-level amateurs to semi- and
professional-level participants.  
Overview:  The course is designed to help each student understand and
develop a unique personal style.  Students bring in their own works and
materials and receive instruction on those independent projects.  For
instance, if a student wanted to begin work on a specific portrait with
instruction along the way...this is a good class for that.  Sometimes students
bring in projects that they've already started working on -- so this course
has no concrete 'beginning' or 'end'; it's for those who have project ideas
and are wanting guidance no matter where they are time-wise in their projects.  
Every student chooses his/her own subject, technique, and medium (though
everything created in this class is 2D and created using non-combustible
materials, students may work in several dry or wet mediums).  Some students
work on several projects at once; others work on one the entire length of the
course.  Enrollment is limited so that I have time to help everyone during each
session.  Students enrolling in this course are at various levels...and most have
their preferences for what medium they like (for instance, graphite, watercolor,
Prismacolor, pastel, acrylic, printmaking, etc.).  But they're all eager for
exposure and instruction.

                                                           below and do not include cost
                                                           of supplies.   Limited enrollment.

Short Course/Workshop:   Pastels in the Park


This short course of two en plein air sessions is open to mid-level
amateur to professional-level artists.

in locations (tba) in and around Hermann Park, in Houston's core.  Students will

as well as application time 'soaking up' an atmosphere highly conducive to
creating vibrant original works in an historic medium.

Short Course:   World of Watercolor
This short course of four made-to-order sessions is open to mid-level amateur to
professional-level artists as well as individuals interested in the history of
watercolors and watercolorists.

Overview:  This unique short course on the world of watercolor includes 1) an
in-depth lecture on the history of watercolor and the lives, styles, and
techniques of some of its foremost historic figures, 2) a viewing of some of
the greatest watercolor works in the MFAH's Works on Paper Study Center
archives (ex's: Sargent, Bellows, Wyeth, Marin, Demuth, etc.) 3) a demonstration
/workshop, and 4) full workshop.

We will review the seemingly simple yet often sophisticated application of
the watercolor medium and why high-tooth /open weave paper is essential in
allowing this medium to move, thereby expressing its fundamental qualities.

Fees are listed below and do not include cost of supplies.

Fees:  4-session course = $270 for first-time students; $243 for all former
students.

Note: Although this 4-session short course is meant to be taken in its entirety,
participants may break it down by lecture, MFAH WPSC viewing, workshop
1 & workshop 2.  If broken down, all individual sessions are 2.5 hours in length
each at $67.50 per session.  Thus, if a participant would prefer to enroll in only
the lecture (1) and viewing (2), the total cost would be $135.  Please contact me   
for specific (unique) bookings by session.

Limited enrollment.


Course Dates:

Lecture:  Thursday, Aug 29 (5:00 - 7:30 pm), TAS Montrose
Viewing at MFAH WPSC:  Thursday, Sep 5 (3:00 - 5:00 pm), MFAH

Short Course:   Drawing from the Live Model

Prerequisites:  Offered to current, prior, and new students.  
Levels: mid-level amateurs to semi-professional.

Overview:  This Thursday evening short studio course is
for students interested in exploring the human form with
instruction -- we will be working with live models.  Mediums:
graphite, charcoal, pastel, and watercolor -- in b/w, grisaille,
and in color (with an emphasis on the use of basic color theory).

The three 2-1/2 hour classes will be intensive drawing sessions
with instruction. We will be working through quick warm-ups
(contours, gestures, and block), to longer precision works with
various concentrations on foreshortening, subjective,
anatomically correct, and/or expressive applications.

The spacing of our sessions allows for classroom studio time,
at-home assignments, and review and application.  Participants
will create several small studies and larger works in class, as
well as several home-based projects.

Fees are listed below and do not include cost of supplies.  
All classes are held at Texas Art Supply Montrose
(2001 Montrose Blvd.).  Limited enrollment.
