Jeff Barnhart by 1:00pm, Return by 4:00pm
Using the medium and subject of your choice, the instruction in this class will focus on painting techniques and fundamentals that work regardless of medium. Students may work in oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel or pen & ink. Jeff will offer occasional demos & lots of personal instruction. Previous experience in drawing or painting is required.
There’s something about a cathead-based basket that compels a second (and third?) look. All those curves are inviting, “Hold me!” This particular basket has smoked stakes, natural flat-oval weavers (flat if you prefer), “beaded-look” lashing (no beads involved!), and 2-color Cherokee wheels. Students will have a warm and a cool color choice for the dyed accent band behind the wheels. The basket is about 13” high, begins with a 9” square base, flares out to about 17” in diameter at its widest part, and draws back in to about 13” in diameter at the rim. All skill levels welcome. Materials fee $52 payable to instructor.
A ground floor drawing experience regardless of skill level: something for everyone, with a variety of subjects! The class focuses on observational skills and applies them to drawing what you see. Students will work on a variety of surfaces and use a variety of materials. Call for materials list.
