Have you been frustrated because you never learned the tricks of the “drawing” trade? Have you painted for years but never really learned to draw? Time to learn something new? Something that will improve your hand-eye coordination, slow aging and grow your brain connections?  

Anyone can learn to draw with the tools I will teach you & lots of practice. Learn to break down objects into their basic elements and shapes, see their edges, notice positive & negative space & composition. Blind contour drawing can enhance your understanding of how to render what you are looking at in a realistic manner quickly. Practice shading & start to understand perspective. Learn the dimensions of the human face and work on a self portrait. 
 
What to bring: black fine tip markers such as Staedtler pigment liner, a ruler, 9” x 12” Strathmore 400 Series Drawing Pad, kneaded eraser, blending stumps, drawing pencil set. Minimum class size is 3. Class size limited to 7.
 
Class starts: Tuesday, December 1st, 2015, 1-3pm for 8 weeks. Cost is $145.00.

NEW!! Monday Morning "Beginner's Oil" Class at the SAA Gallery each week from 11:00 a.m.- 2:00pm. Pre-registration is required because of class size (call 603-828-6585). NO CLASSES during the quarterly gallery hanging, which will be announced on our Meetup.com Site - Seacoast Artist Connection. This class is a prepaid session of five pre-paid (flexible date) classes that will bring the new oil painter from learning to "see as an artist", to using their materials, planning their composition using sketches and color studies to painting their first painting in oils. We will be painting in the "Alla Prima" or Direct approach to painting, then exploring the “Indirect or Layering and Glazing” approach in order to find that “fine professional finishing” in oil painting. Not appropriate for abstract painters. There will be; handouts, teacher demos, fun Art DVD's to watch, and exercises in composition and color mixing. You will learn to use various "supports" and techniques, and there will be essential student critiques. Photographing your work and framing it, will also be discussed. Students, who have some experience painting in oils, will find new materials, techniques and theories, as well. We will discuss the best Art "blogs" and the best art books on Kindle will be available to read. 
 

This class welcomes new students each class date and will build upon the previous classes for returning students based on their skill levels.  Fee is $90.00 for a series of 5 classes on a pre-paid punch card, payable at your first class. If you choose to use my materials before you buy your materials, there will be an extra charge of $5.00 each classThis is NOT a drop-in class payable weekly, however, your class dates of 5 prepaid classes are flexible.  Limit is 6 each class

**Odorless spirits only, no turpentine or turpenoid.
