Description

Gain the skills you can use to draw any flower, any time. This workshop introduces clear, simple strategies—shown through video demonstrations and written instructions—to approach drawing flowers. These strategies can then be used for many other organic forms, including the human body. Drawing a flower starts with noticing how it grows: Strong visual acuity is emphasized and students are shown how it originates from the stem and its central axis, and then radiates outward from that center. Students work independently on drawing that begins with establishing this central axis and then building a schematic line structure to develop the form. The class regroups in a Zoom meeting to view work and discuss individual progress. Students receive instruction and additional resources covering basic flower anatomy and several different flower types.

Description

Watercolor is the perfect medium to capture the spontaneous beauty and fleeting nature of the sky, a contributing factor in the success of any landscape or seascape painting -- and it's often the most-fun part to paint. Students are shown demonstrations of wet-on-wet painting technique and then practice on their own. Immediate results are achieved and students quickly learn how to utilize watercolor in a bold and expressive way to create atmospheric depth and mood in their painting. Demonstrations and tutorials followed by instructions and explanations prepare students to experiment with different pigment combinations, brushes and composition choices and achieve an array of convincing and expressive skies in watercolor in just one evening.

Notes:
- Students alternate with working independently and gathering back in the Zoom classroom to view each other’s work.
- This class will be taught through our online course management platform (CE Link) and video conferencing platform (Zoom).
