Utilizing the art method called Zentangle®, we can relax when we draw… observing and learning to de-construct patterns so we can easily construct them in our images. For the beginner, it builds self-confidence, strengthens muscle-memory, and helps nurture individual style. For the non-beginner, it offers help for artist's block and a "time-out" from the stress that often accompanies creativity. For everyone, it adds a new "palette" to be explored, employed, and enjoyed. In a "No Mistakes" environment, we can better understand the art principle of Pattern (repeating elements in our compositions). Age 17 and up. Instructor will provide all supplies.

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.
