AND/OR PAINTING FOR EVERYONE
Keep beauty and activity in your life with a group art class. Bring your
drawing paper and/or paints to these low-key group art sessions. We begin
with a 5-10 minute warm-up exercise that draws from yoga, tai chi, meditation
or other mind/body discipline. Then one or two simple exercises will be
suggested. For most of class, we will work on our own with individual
attention when needed. This class is for adolescent to adult.
OR PAINT YOUR DREAM GARDEN
For adults who want to tap into the wealth of images provided by our dreams,
memories and experiences. We will work with guided imagery and relaxation
techniques to draw or paint image from nature. Beginning with simple techniques,
we may be surprised by the complexity that emerges. No experience necessary.
This class is for teen to adult.
DRAWING AND PAINTING FROM AND WITH NATURE
This is an experiential workshop designed for people who feel inspired
by the great outdoors. In this freeform workshop, we will use objects
and materials from nature to expand our art-making techniques. We will
begin by bringing and collecting items from nature. We will then experiment
and learn from our selves and each other, using the objects as brushes,
stamps, collage and textural material. We will deepen our appreciation
for nature. This class is for adolescent to adult.
LIFE WITH AN ELVIS DOLL
Create a still life painting that captures your own sweet, outgoing, eclectic
or wacky personality. We will learn about the tradition of still life
painting, choose objects that have personal meaning, and respond to the
objects in paint. Some previous painting experience is helpful. This
class is for adolescent to adult.
