Constructive Drawing & Painting, ONLINE, start anytime, $360 for 8 classes
This course is absolutely jam-packed with information and practical tools to learn and improve your drawing and painting skills at every level.  Our goal is to improve how we see and understand the visual world more deeply.  By understanding the language of mark-making, you will cultivate your drawing and painting skills faster than you expect.  New students will start with the following topics:
  1. Introduction to the language of mark making (identify, categorize and learn how and when to use them.). How to draw “haptically,” “feeling” your way through a drawing.
  2. Construct objects using specific marks.
  3. Composing and stitching together subject matter quickly
  4. Shadow and light
  5. Basic paint placement
  6. Adding details with paint

Students may continue to draw instead of paint.  Your program will be adjusted accordingly.

ON LOCATION Landscape/Urbanscape Painting Course, $360 for 8 classes, starting July 11 (10am-1pm)

Painting outdoors is fun!  In this class we will meet weekly in a predetermined place to paint nature and urban environments while maintaining a physical distance from others.  We will learn how to improve our painting skills, deal with light conditions, capture mood, in depth color understanding and more with the bare minimum of equipment and a fun and safe learning environment.  No prior knowledge is necessary.  The challenge to painting the outdoors is learning how to organize the myriad of information the natural world presents and translate that onto the canvas with personal style intact.  The class will be supplemented with occasional online tutorials for those who wish to access lessons in the comfort of their home.
