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

Course: Advanced Design: Independent Projects (ADIP)
Prerequisites: Offered to mid-level amateurs to semi- and
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.
