Artists’ fine line markers are not just for careful detail work – they’re also great for quick sketches. With the addition of color – with colored pens, a few colored pencils, watercolor pencils, pastels or watercolors – you can create fresh and lively frameable art or fill a journal. Forget erasing and fixing things, just loosen up and have fun drawing (Weather permitting, this class will draw outside too). Ages 17 and up.

Figure drawing is timeless and important because it seeks to portray the complex beauty of the human person. In this course, students will be taught how to draw the nude human figure from a live model using charcoal and chalk on paper. The instructor will provide all the necessary materials for the workshop. Prior drawing experience and knowledge of basic drawing concepts is highly recommended, as the figure is one of the most difficult subjects to draw. Lessons will use a structural approach geared towards helping students draw what they see. Students will be taught techniques to establish accurate proportions, simplify the subject, and understand value relationships. The workshop will consist of demonstrations, gestures, and several long pose drawings. There will also be individualized help when necessary. Ages 17 and up.

This workshop meets on Saturday and Sunday. Water soluble colored pencils combine the precision and control of pencil drawing with the fluid possibilities of watercolor paint. They’re especially useful for travelers and plein air artists, great for sketchbooks and journals. Come explore the many ways these versatile drawing tools can be used—wet or dry, alone or for mixed media. Derwent, leading makers and innovators in this fine art medium, will provide all the pencils for use in this class. (And you’ll get to keep some too!) Ages 17 and up.
