Eric will help students understand how their digital camera works, and how to better understand the various functions. Topics include shooting modes, understanding Shutter Speed, Aperture & ISO, Composition, Rule of Thirds, White Balance, Shooting Indoors & Outdoors, and other topics. Class time, as well as hands-on time with the students’ own cameras, will be available. This class is a basic course for beginners and for people with a little experience. Bring your camera and a notepad to class!
Students will create a unique 12×16 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, using either the sheep in a pasture or poppies design. 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. For the wall hanging classes this summer, we can make it flexible. Either flowers, landscape, or sheep.
Beginners are welcome! Materials fee $15 payable to instructor.
Many artists enjoy depicting animals in their work, and if there’s one thing many animals have in common, it’s fur! But fur comes in many versions, from the smooth hair of a horse, to the dense fur of a lion’s mane, to the thick, soft fur of a Persian cat. In this class we will use a variety of colored pencil techniques to create several small swatches of different types of fur, then – as time permits – students may choose one type to render as a more complete animal study.
