Drawing (Beginner and Intermediate)

A Great Way to Relax! Learn to draw or perfect your drawing skills. Does your drawing look like your subject? Do you usually draw stick trees and figures? Are you happy with the layout you prepped for coloring with any medium? 

Classes and guided projects will include exercises to train hand and eye coordination that will aid in capturing an improved drawing of your subject; the use of line (edges); tone (light and shadow); space (negative and positive); and relationships (perspective, proportion, etc.). The drawing class is aimed at beginners as well as intermediate level artists who want a refresher on fundamental drawing skills.   No previous drawing experience is needed. Join and have fun!

Class Schedule: Thursdays, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM. Fee: $10/per class with a minimum of a 3-week commitment. (Bring your own supplies or order them from Audrey prior to class.)

Watercolor Painting (Beginner and Intermediate)

Learn how to paint with watercolor paints. Students will learn how to use and control their paints effectively. Methods will include using a dry brush and what effects a paper towel and a porous sponge can create. The class is designed to help the student gain confidence with the medium. Beginners will Learn the fundamental techniques of watercolor. Intermediate students will have new challenges with an emphasis on exploring techniques.

Basic drawing skills recommended, but not required.  Students will be responsible for providing their own supplies. A supply list will be provided ahead of the first class.

Class Schedule: Wednesdays, 2:00 PM –4:00 PM. Fee: $20/per class with a minimum of a 3-week commitment. (Bring your own supplies.)
