• Drawing/sketching with pencil and/or charcoal 
  • Working with paint, canvas and tools
  • Understanding color, value and perspective

Courses may be 1, 2 or 3 hours long for a set number of weeks.  These courses will help you understand concepts like perspective, line, form, proportion, shape, composition, point of light, etc. Important drawing principles are the building blocks of every painting and are addressed in every class. A clear appreciation for these concepts can greatly improve your drawings and paintings.  With each project you are learning to see as an artist and build your skills.

"I would liken these classes to a journey. I do not wish to tell you which path to take, but rather to supply you with the tools you may need along your way."
