Both adults and children are welcome.

Drawing classes

 

I teach colored pencil basics, along with shading and texture techniques to students of all ages and levels. Art subjects include flowers, seashells, or a project of your choice.

 

Half-day workshops

If you have never worked with colored pencils and want to explore an exciting new medium, come for a three-hour session and learn which pencils and drawing papers to use.

  • Practice diverse techniques while finding the ones that feel right for you.
  • Gain familiarity with the many different pencils, blending tools, special effects, and problem-solving techniques for your designs.

A workshop is a convenient and less expensive way to combine three weeks of lessons into one morning or afternoon. You can always follow up with individual classes to further hone your skills.

Favorite art supply stores for my art classes

Below are my recommendations for purchasing art supplies:

“In a media-rich society in which children are constantly barraged with images of pain and greed and ugliness, it is crucial to their well-being to balance the scales with attention to the beautiful – art for the survival of the spirit … Beauty is perhaps a reward, but is surely an antidote to the wildly unbalanced view of humanity delivered to us by our mass culture.” — John Caddy, poet, naturalist, and teacher
