September 13 – Endless Summer Seascape ($35)
Enjoy a night of whimsy and fun creating a wave scene using the art element of color. We will address mixing the primary colors to create any desired color and practice putting complimentary and/or analogous colors together to create a work of art. Materials included.
September 27 – Date Night, Aspen Trees ($60/couple)
Painting together, couples (or friends) will work on one painting simultaneously. All students will work on the same image of aspen trees with your personal initials carved into the tree. Paintings will be on a slightly larger work surface than the individual lessons and be a great lesson in sharing space and supplies as well as creating an image that is unique to you as a couple. You will take your shared artwork home and must work out the custody of your art on your own terms! We will have a blast! Bring your sense of humor and refreshments, if you wish. All supplies will be provided upon arrival.
October 11 – Night Sky ($35)
Chiaroscuro (Italian for light-dark) in art is the use of strong contrast between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition. It is also a technical term used by artists and art historians for the use of contrasts of light to achieve a sense of volume in modelling three-dimensional objects and figures. We will create a moon using chiaroscuro and use the element of light and dark to create the drama of a night skyline. Materials included.
October 25 – Mountain Sunset ($35)
An element of art space refers to distances or areas around, between or within components of a piece. Sometimes space isn’t actually within a piece, but the illusion of it is. We will use the art element of space to create a beautiful mountain sunset painting. Materials included.
