Create Pastels Like A Master, Helen Solomon

Helen Solomon B-I
Fridays 1:00-3:30

Edgar Degas took his pastel work very seriously. Leonardo da Vinci used black and red chalk with yellow pastel highlights. The goal of this class is to introduce pastels and the many ways they can be used. Each student will develop their own style, no matter the subject, still life, landscape, seascape, figure or portrait. For the first half hour of each class we will critique work created the week before. As a group we will discuss each others artwork. This is a great time to talk about you, the artist, and briefly discuss your next step. This is also a great time to observe each other’s work and maybe even pick-up something new that a fellow student might have suggested.

Wednesdays 2:00-5:00

Whether you have painted before or have never held a brush, this class is for you. Creativity is inside all of us, it just gets frustrated by preconceived ideas. This class is about learning to see what is really there and then painting it. In the process, we find the we are the subject of the painting, as much as anything else. That is where expression comes in. We will paint from photos as well as from a still life.

Beeswax Collage, Elena De La Ville

Elena De La Ville B-A
Saturdays 10:00-3:00

Learn how to create a collage entirely with beeswax – no other glues or adhesives are necessary! You’ll discover and practice techniques including layering, transparency and wax stamping. Some supplies will be provided for basic collages, but feel free to bring your art box (with scissors, glue & brushes), your favorite images and ephemera as well to personalize your art. Any images you bring should be on regular computer paper – the thinner the better. Reduce, enlarge photos to have choice in scale but glossy photos won’t work well with this process. Fabric, stencils and small 3-D objects work great! Supply fee payable to the instructor of $12.

Try New Things, Libit Jones

Libit Jones B-A

Bring your “not so happy with” works on paper and let’s see if we can make them into something you are happy with. Watercolor crayons and Distress Oxides are both opaque and can cover whatever you don’t like. Stencils and stamps can sneak in on even the most traditional of paintings. Sometimes just changing the color with a transparent color can brighten things. Stamps, stencils, watercolor crayons, Distress Oxides and whatever else I think of will be provided. Let’s try some new things!
