PRIVATE STUDIO ART COURSES
_______________________________________________________________________________________________


Course:    Creating Fauves Portraits

Prerequisites:  offered to mid-level amateurs to semi- and professional-level
participants.  

Overview:  This studio course will weave the great colorist movement,
Fauvism (the 'wild beasts') together with the fine art of portraiture...  
Led by its co-founders, Henri Matisse and Andre Derain, Fauvism was the
early 20th century's response to Impressionism -- with a new determination to
instill a brilliantly-colored edge into the world of art.  So, 'out' were the
languid subjects of the latter 19th century and 'in' were brazen, unexpected
colors reinterpreting our world and the people in it.  And it's to both the art
of portraiture and Fauvism we turn -- as we build dynamic human expression
through the unique application of color chosen and created through mood.  

Notes:  We will be using dry and wet media on paper as we explore the
expressive qualities of the human face and form through brilliantly colored
portraiture.  We will also visit the MFAH twice during this 8-session course to
understand and capture the moods created by color.   This is a course for
creative participants who enjoy making an exceptionally 'wild' statement!   


Course dates:  

THURSDAY EVENINGS, May - July,  5:15 - 7:45 pm , 6 sessions at Montrose
location, TAS, and 2 sessions at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

8 (2-1/2 hour) Sessions:  May 2 (SKIP 9), 16 (SKIP 23), 30, June 6 (SKIP 13) 20,
27 (SKIP July 4), July 11 & 18

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.



                                                      Fees are listed with each course
                                                      below and do not include cost
                                                      of supplies.   Limited enrollment.

His Life and Works

This short course is open to adults (students or non-students) with an interest
in the life and works of Vincent van Gogh.

Overview:  This unique short course on the life and works of Vincent van
Gogh includes two private in-depth lectures discussing his works along with a

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, works, and personality --
through 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.

exhibition); $155 for non-members or members wishing to purchase their
exhibition tickets through me.
