In the supportive atmosphere of this studio class, you will explore a variety of art materials and techniques with stimulating projects that will spark your innate artistic abilities. Each week, students will experiment with a new medium: colored pencils, charcoal, markers, chalk pastels and colored paper, oil pastels, paints (watercolor, gouache or acrylic), mixed media, and non-art materials. Students will be guided through creative risk-taking exercises and assisted in developing a final project.
Note: No prior art experience is necessary. Bring to first meeting: 18x24" Strathmore drawing pad (80lb), newsprint pad, 2 graphite pencils (3B or 4B), & white eraser. Complete materials list given in first class meeting.
