FINDING YOUR WORK
Jan 08, 2019 - Feb 12, 2019


STUDENTS MAY WORK IN MEDIUM OF THIER CHOICE.
Focus your creative energy and build a body of work by working in series.
This class offers exercises, processes, and disciplines to inspire you to dig in and create art that feels like yours, art with originality, feeling, and a strong conceptual basis. Discover why art matters to you and what kind of artist you are or want to be. We’ll use generative creative exercises designed to bypass self-doubt and spark new possibilities by opening doors you didn’t know were there. Skill level is irrelevant. Medium is irrelevant. This is about self-reflection and the foundations of art. Our goal is to nurture a creative practice fulfilling in itself yet engaged with the past and present of art and life at large.  Approriate for intermediate and up.. not intended for a beginner in medium of choice.

PASTELS: MAKE IT BIG
Jan 09, 2019 - Feb 13, 2019


CREATING LARGE SCALE PASTELS
It's a new year an a new you, it's time to shake off the cobwebs! This 6 week pastel class will challenge you to create a large pastel painting. This means significantly larger than what you usually do. Working larger will lend itself to larger, broader, gestural strokes across the paper. You will see a transition in your painting style as you learn to adapt to a larger size paper, and you will find you have more room for expressive movement. Once you work larger, your other smaller work may seem much easier. Please bring an iPad with photos to work from or printed photos and all materials to the first class.
