Karin Richter  All media Workshop

Tuesday Aug 3 9:30-3:30

In this one-day workshop, participants may paint in either watercolour, acrylic or pastels. It is an opportunity to try a new medium as Karin will cover the characteristics of each medium and concentrate on what makes them each unique but also what all of them have in common.

Participants already have knowledge on how to paint in their usual medium but will get an opportunity to expand their horizon by experiencing the differences and trying their hand at them.

We will review the basics of good preparation, composition and colour choices, important for any medium.

Enjoy stretching your artistic muscle and get back in the game!

A materials list is attached. If you are new to one of the mediums, I do carry enough sets of pastels for you to try but not acrylics. You can buy a simple set of these at Michaels or any art supply store along with a few inexpensive brushes. Even the Dollar Store has some basic supplies like canvas boards. I am sure we can share some supplies.

Jane Romanishko  Portrait Drawing 101

Tuesday Aug 31  9:30-3:30

There is nothing more challenging and fascinating in art than drawing a human face. It presents the double problem for the artist: rendering the exterior and capturing the personality. However challenging that might be, it is simple if you KNOW HOW. Step-by-step instructions will get you to understand the basics of portrait drawing and get the mystery out of it.

Whether you have never draw a portrait before, or you want to strengthen your knowledge of portrait drawing, Instructor Jane Romanishko will lead you through this process.

In this one day workshop you will be introduced to basics of drawing generic portraits, proportions, values and techniques. In the afternoon you can try to draw from Instructor’s reference. Any drawing medium are welcome.
