Mon. 6:30-8:00pm           

Instructor: Lydia Bratton
Learn to create the illusion of space and depth in your drawings. We will study how an object’s appearance is affected by position and distance from the viewer, using various approaches to linear and atmospheric perspective. This class is recommended for those who have taken Drawing Skills or equivalent introductory instruction. Course fee includes tuition and $20 supply fee.


Ages 15 & up 
(5 Weeks)  Feb. 20 - Mar. 20
Tue. 10:30am-12:30pm

Instructor: Michele Frantz
Versatile and forgiving, water-based acrylics may be manipulated with a wide array of methods, applied to many different surfaces, and modified with various additives. We will explore application techniques, surface variations, and the effect of medium additives to stretch the reach of our creativity. Small class size allows for individual instruction: students new to acrylics will learn introductory basics; more advanced students will further develop skills and explore new directions. The class may be taken multiple times; new subject matter is presented in each session. Canvases and boards will be provided by the instructor; registrants will receive a list of materials to bring to class via email after registration.  Course fee includes tuition and $12 canvas fee.


Ages 5-7
(3 Weeks) Feb. 27- March 15
Tue. & Thu. 5-6pm
