PRIVATE STUDIO ART COURSES
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

Course:    Life Drawing  [ 8-session course ]

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

Overview:  This unique Thursday evening 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 eight 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 one and two-week spacing of our sessions allows for
classroom studio time, at-home assignments, and classroom
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.).

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.

pastel, acrylic, and printmaking.  Campstools will be supplied as

Short Course:   Vincent van Gogh:
              
His Life and Works

No prerequisites needed.
Overview:  This unique short course on the life and works of Vincent van
Gogh includes private in-depth lectures discussing his works along with
a visit to the MFAH to view the once-in-a-lifetime traveling exhibition,
"Vincent van Gogh: His Life in Art", with fifty masterworks of extraordinary
color and vitality from the van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the
Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo,  Netherlands.   We will come to know
van Gogh's singular talent and personality -- with his unprecedented
memory, acute intelligence, exceedingly difficult and debilitating
mental/emotional and physical illnesses, and his burning need to
document it all through a short ten-year period of exceptional creativity.

Fees:  $135 for MFAH members (with private passes or ticket purchases to the
exhibition); $165 for non-members (non-member fees are approximate at this
time as the MFAH has not yet determined ticket costs -- non-member
tickets will be purchased by me).
Limited enrollment.

Lecture 2:  Tuesday evening, April 2 (5:30 - 7:15 pm), TAS Montrose
