BEYOND THE BASICS – 3 class sessions
WITH VIRGINIA MACK

FEE: $35/session – Advance sign-up required

You know that a masterpiece lurks within you, but it is elusive. You are a devoted artist, a painter, but each piece is missing something. What is it? How can you push to the next level? You are ready to go Beyond the Basics.

In Drawing Plus: Beyond the Basics, we will work our way through drawing exercises that will further awaken you to the dynamics of painting and drawing: composition, color interactions, the impact of choices of medium. Join us. Your masterpiece awaits!

This is a series of workshops designed to be experienced in an open-ended way. You may continue as long as you wish, or try just one or two sessions. Each month, there will be a new series of dates for the sessions. (If you are an experienced artist, you do not need to take Drawing Plus before taking these workshops.)

Basic materials will be supplied.

To enroll, contact Virginia Mack — Email: vbmack@charter.net  Phone: 805-975-5374

BASIC DRAWING – 3 class sessions
WITH VIRGINIA MACK

FEE: $40/session – Advance sign-up required

With a pencil, a drawing pad, and a smile on your face, you are ready!

This series of classes will allow you to gain the skills you need to capture what you see with accuracy and spirit.

In each class, we will address a specific area of drawing, and as you proceed, you will gain confidence and mastery.

We will use a variety of media (samples provided,) and will develop both sketching and drawing techniques. Skill areas will include understanding basic drawing processes, the techniques used with each medium, use of elements (line, shape, volume, value, color, and texture) in developing naturalistic subjects, and principles of composition. The class is designed for both beginners and those with developing drawing skills already in place.

WORKSHOP: MIXED AND UNMIXED MEDIA

TUESDAY, MARCH 17th920 Bridal Veil
1:30-4:30PM
Third Tuesday of each month

INSPIRATION AND EXPERIMENTATION
WITH ARDELLA SWANBERG

FEE: $25 (paid at least 5 days before each class)

Please contact me if you plan to attend! I need to know in advance so I can bring enough of the experimental supplies you will need.

Join me to get inspired and enjoy experimenting the 3rd Tuesday of every month. The goal of this class is to introduce ourselves to media and ideas we have never tried.  Do you want to paint more freely, and to add pizzazz with confidence? One way to achieve this is to acquaint yourself with what different mediums can do. We don’t need brand new paper for this. We can start with covering over paintings that didn’t work or practicing on the backs of old paintings. Some of the things we will explore are texture, mixing pastel with gesso, stamping words or patterns, and adding a third dimension.

Bring an old painting or new paper and your painting supplies. We will add fabric and paper to our substrate that we first paint. I will bring some collage paper, music sheets, pieces of cloth, etc. If you have some cloth and paper scraps that you want to use, bring them!

To register, please contact Ardella (Jo) — Email: ardellajo@yahoo.com Phone: 805-234-1754
