Beginner Pastel with Liam Vogel

This beginner level class is intended to give adult students a basic understanding of pastel painting techniques. Students will learn the importance of color, composition, and value while using a variety of pastel painting approaches. Students will work from still life setups to produce completed drawings, which we will critique as a group, in an attempt to discover the strengths/weaknesses of each student individually! Although this isn’t a drawing class, basic drawing techniques will be reviewed for students who are inexperienced with drawing. Student grade materials are available for use at an additional cost, but it is suggested that students acquire a basic set of Rembrandt Pastels, as well as sanded paper.

Alan Lewis Beginning Watercolor

This beginning watercolor class will be focused on producing finished work.  I have noticed that I have learned best when following along painting with an artist, so that is the approach this class will follow.  The first week will be devoted to materials, helping negotiate between all the different options, and what the importance of each element is.  First time students are encouraged to attend, and to bring whatever you have.  We will then produce a finished painting each week with a different subject, and returning students are welcomed.  The approach will be to paint fast and loose, to cover the basics of watercolor by doing them, and hopefully to have some fun.

Classical Drawing with Matthew McDonald

This course is designed to strengthen student’s drawing skills. Students will study
Master Drawings, Plaster Casts, and eventually the Figure. The progression will be from
working on two dimensional projects to working from life in three dimensions.
Emphasis will be on observing and interpreting nature faithfully to fortify the relation of
the eye and hand. Students will work their way through a series of projects beginning with two master
copies. Here they will develop strategies as well as new vocabulary and techniques that
will help them when working from life.

Next they will work from Plaster Casts, the first being something simple such as a facial
feature and the second a bust or mask. Cast drawing will help the students understand
form and value more easily as they won’t be distracted by colour. It will also give them a
chance to apply some of the drawing “solutions” they learned from working on the
master copies. Before they move onto working from the figure from life they will do a
series of small quick figure drawing copies to help them with gesture and to start talking
about anatomical landmarks.

Finally working from the live model students will spend a number of days working on a
sustained pose. We will pick the pose as a group looking for a strong gesture, interesting
shapes and strong light effect. I will ask students to bring their previous figure drawings
as well so they have some reference. I will draw alongside the students as well, so they
can see my approach. I would expect this course to take about three months from start
to finish if students are only working one day a week (Sat or Sun). Any one who wanted
to join the course later would simply start at the beginning and would have to have the
figure drawing portion done at either earlier or at another time when there are enough
students to make hiring a model viable. Click the link below for the materials list

One day Pastel Color & Energy Workshop with Linda Richichi

Whether you are brand new or have been painting for years everyone can learn something new when it comes to working with color. Color is the number one way to evoke emotion in a work of art. How can you express yourself more successfully with color and create art with high energy? Come find out.

2020 Dates TBA 10 am – 4 pm $150 (includes samples from sponsors of Richichi workshops).

Start with the color wheel

Before arriving at the class, be familiar with the layout of the basic color wheel seen at the bottom of the page. If you have never made a color wheel, you’ll have your chance to select this exercise to tackle.  If you already know the color wheel inside and out, your assignments will be more advanced. Everyone will learn something new in this workshop.

Color intimidates many people. We’ll break it down and make it less daunting.

What colors are you drawn to? How do you mix colors to get them to do what you want them to do? How do you work with prismatic, pure colors and create neutrals so that the colors you want to stand out sing? What about creating a high energy  work of art? Do you know how to not go over the top? There is so much about color to learn. You will take a journey into color theory and come out the other side smiling as your color confidence grows.


Learn from nature

After we work in the studio blending, mixing and selecting color schemes, you will learn how colors change depending on the time of day, temperature of the light and whether in the light or in the shadows. Intermediate to advanced. Personalized attention at your easel to guide you and advance.

Mini Lessons reap huge rewards

Each mini lesson is specifically prepared to upgrade your color knowledge so you drive away understanding color challenges better than ever. You will receive specific assignments based on your level of experience. You will receive instruction tailored for your specific needs. Mixing? Seeing color? Creating harmony? Understanding warm and cool colors? After instruction, select the assignment right for you. You know what you need more help with.
