The Beauty of Abstraction

March 19, 2019
Kate Keely by 6:00pm, Return by 8:30pm


Join us as we spend three sessions focusing on the creative and expressive use of the Elements of Art and Principles of Design.  We will discuss the similarities and differences between representational, abstract and non-objective artwork. Each class participant will experience the freedom of deriving the essence of subject matter through the subtle use of simplification, color, contrast and space. Class members will work with a wide variety of materials to generate new ideas and fresh approaches to their chosen subject matter. Demonstrations will be done in acrylic yet students are welcome to bring their own fluid media as well as canvas or paper.

Adding Animals to Your Watercolor Landscape

Kent Roberts by 1:00pm, Return by 4:00pm


Putting animals in your watercolor landscape adds interest and life: in this class Kent will help you learn to paint animals in a style that matches the rest of the painting. Subjects will include a  horse at Assateague Island, a fox in a snowy forest,  and a brown bear in a stream on an autumn day. Students will learn through instructor demonstrations, hands-on practice, and insightful critiques. Previous experience in drawing or painting is recommended. Image shows class subject. Call for materials list.
