W09 - The Art of Tangling
3 classes

Sun Jan 29, Feb 5, 12

Time: 1 - 3 pm

Explore the relaxing world of tangling. The process of art tangling is in part skill building; learning the pen strokes and different patterns, how to shade the tangle effectively, how to design your own pattern. It is also equally about the process, the slowing down and deliberation of each stroke on the page, it really is a form of meditation The beauty of this art form is that no drawing experience is needed to be successful, just patience and a willingness to let go. An additional materials fee of $15 is payable to the instructor on the first day of class for all required materials.

A01 - Getting Started: Drawing
10 classes

Tues Jan 31 - April 11 (no class Mar 14)

Time: 7 - 9 pm

Learning to draw is a prerequisite for most painting courses. In this ten-week course we will practice the step-by-step process of creating a good drawing and build a solid foundation in the basic principles of visual art. We will begin with simple still life arrangements and gradually work our way up to the human figure, exploring different mediums and strategies along the way. This course is for beginners, but would benefit more experienced artists as well.
