PLEIN AIR PAINTING IN THE GARDEN
We will meet weekly for 3 weeks in local gardens, where there is an abundance of day lilies, hollyhocks, hostas, lavender and fruit trees. Kristine will demonstrate in oils or watercolors, with emphasis on color, composition and perspective. Students may use the medium of their choice.
A portable easel or other support is recommended. Students should bring items such as sunscreen, hat, bug repellent, etc. to be comfortable outdoors. In case of rain, we will meet in Kristine's classroom and work on floral still life.
Classes will meet Mondays from 9-11:30, July 13, 20 and 27. Cost is $75. To register, email Kristine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MIXING IT UP: EXPERIMENTING WITH PAINT AND COLLAGE
In this 4-week class, we will explore a variety of mediums, including paste paper, collage, paint, ink, stamps and stencils to create surface design on paper. After we have created our stash of materials, we will use our decorated paper to create projects such as cards, paper quilts, origami boxes, book covers and prayer flag style banners. Most materials will be provided. Students should bring scissors, a flat 1/2"-3/4" synthetic brush and an apron or smock.
Class meets Mondays 9-11:30 August 3, 10, 17 and 24. Cost is $80. To register, email me email@example.com.
