 Adult classes start at age 17.


Our 8-week Spring Semester for adults starts on Monday, April 15.

There's a class here for you, no matter what your experience. Some of our students can't remember the last time they explored their "artistic side". Others are quite far along in their artistic ventures.

We go out of our way to make you feel comfortable in developing that part of you that wants to be creative.

Adult classes are for students aged 17+.

Drawing: Beginning and Intermediate

for Adults
Monday evenings, 6:30 - 9:00 pm (Caswell)
or Thursday mornings, 10:00 am - 12:30 pm (Rossoni)
Starts Monday, April 15 or Thursday, April 18.

Relax and Draw! You can do it! Have you been thinking of taking an art course but have little or no experience? This drawing course is for you. You will learn to see as an artist sees, strengthening your skills of drawing and expression, using a variety of drawing techniques. You will develop the illusion of 3-dimensional form and space, observing the qualities of light and shading in the still life, and work with creative exercises to broaden your experience. With individual instruction and gentle group critiques, you will develop your awareness of composition through the use of elements and principles of art.

Whether you are just beginning or are taking what you have learned to the next level, this class really gives you the foundation and confidence many find lacking in some watercolor classes.

Those who have taken this class previously will find lots more to do to advance their watercolor experience. You can do it!

Some basic drawing experience is strongly recommended.

Those familiar with traditional and experimental watercolor techniques further develop their skills with challenging exercises.

With inspiration from forms in still-life, landscape, abstract design or the figure, we explore visual ideas as fully as one's ability allows. Composition, color, light, and brush techniques are only some of the areas we will investigate.
