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.

An atelier is an art school focused on teaching classical drawing techniques. Atelier training has been highly sought after by prospective art students in recent years because it provides students with the skills they need to create realistic artworks. In this class, students will learn foundational drawing techniques that are commonly taught in ateliers. These techniques will help students to establish accurate proportions, simplify a subject, and understand value relationships. The instructor will provide personalized feedback to help each student grow. In class, students will draw still lifes as well as copies of master artworks in pencil. The instructor will also provide students with resources to help them continue to learn outside of class. All materials will be provided by the instructor. Ages 17 and up.
