Drawing Animals

December 15, 2018
Kate Keely by 1:00pm, Return by 2:30pm


Do you love Lions, Tigers, and Bears? Are dogs, cats and horses your favorite furry friends? In these classes, we will begin by comparing the body structures of different animals and then cover ways to draw them using their underlying structure.  As we study each animals' unique features, we will also consider both proportion and detail. This class will increase your skills in drawing using line, shape, value, texture and space. Working with a variety of materials, we will have a fun week as we bring animals and their environments to life! 

Oil Painting with Ski Holm - January Dates

December 20, 2018
Ski Holm by 1:00pm, Return by 4:00pm



Whether you're a beginner looking to develop good habits or more experienced and looking to break some bad ones, this class can help. While demystifying the oil painting process, you'll work from direct observation to develop greater hand-to-eye coordination. Basically, “see it, paint it”. You will also learn step-by-step methods of color mixing, making form by blending, and many of the do's and don't s of composition.  “Remember, oil painting is a simple process but not necessarily an easy one. Nothing worthwhile ever is.”  Call for materials list. Check out Ski’s blog at http://skiholm.blogspot.com      

Sheep in a Pasture Felted Wall Hanging

January 7, 2019
Barb Pennett by 12:00pm, Return by 4:00pm


Students will create a unique 12x16 wall hanging of carded and prefelt wool, using the process of wet felting. Each person can make the design their own, or follow Barb’s example.  Once your creation is complete, soapy water and friction will felt it all together.  After the felting is complete and it is dry you will be shown how to stretch it over a canvas. Beginners are welcome! Materials fee $15 payable to instructor.
