Try-it Classes

“I get so much out of coming to class with you. You teach us to approach our work fearlessly! You encourage us, invite us to try new things, give us many options including looking at our work differently in order to see better where we want to go with it. ”.

A new selection of one or two time short workshops for adults, to offer a quick exposure to various fine arts and hand crafts without having to commit to a full semester of classes. A great opportunity to hone skills or learn something totally new! Bring a friend, bring your book club, even bring your spouse!

Black and White Drawing

Every one can learn to draw!! Line, tone, texture, values, contour and shape – all of this is presented in a way that allows everyone, even a novice, to end up on a much higher level than where they began. We’ll show you how to practice drawing what you actually see. Work from still life or photographic reference to gain experience in drawing as well as understand and use perspective and proportion! Learn it the right way, for the first time!

Collage

Join us! This is going to inspire you to collage often – for yourself, your home, for gifts! Join us as Linda Nemergut leads you in this creative and fun technique to unleash the inner artist in you. Collage comes from the French word "colle" meaning to glue. By gluing various materials not normally used together on a single surface, a new piece of artwork is created. This easy to learn technique yields gorgeous artwork! In the first hands-on workshop, you’ll create papers using monotype prints and manipulated magazine images (using CitraSolv and a variety of tools).

On the second day, examples of the merit of collage will be discussed, looking at artwork by various artists. Then lessons on composition and a demonstration of the collage technique. You’ll then create your own collages incorporating papers from our first week with other materials (newspapers, music sheets, decorative paper, envelopes, etc)

Thursday, October 19th and 26th | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM -OR- 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Oil Painting

Learn the basics of how to create a beautiful oil painting or join us to hone your painting skills! Color mixing will come into play as well as awareness of composition. Beginners or those with experience will come away from this class with a strong understanding of how to construct a painting. Oils have unique qualities – smooth, silky, luxurious, rich – that are enhanced by the process you will learn in brush and mixing techniques. This is another class that you will find both relaxing and very rewarding.

Thursday, November 2nd and 9th | 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM -OR- 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
