BEYOND THE BASICS – 3 class sessions
WITH VIRGINIA MACK
FEE: $35/session – Advance sign-up required
You know that a masterpiece lurks within you, but it is elusive. You are a devoted artist, a painter, but each piece is missing something. What is it? How can you push to the next level? You are ready to go Beyond the Basics.
In Drawing Plus: Beyond the Basics, we will work our way through drawing exercises that will further awaken you to the dynamics of painting and drawing: composition, color interactions, the impact of choices of medium. Join us. Your masterpiece awaits!
This is a series of workshops designed to be experienced in an open-ended way. You may continue as long as you wish, or try just one or two sessions. Each month, there will be a new series of dates for the sessions. (If you are an experienced artist, you do not need to take Drawing Plus before taking these workshops.)
Basic materials will be supplied. To enroll, contact Virginia by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 805-975-5374

BASIC DRAWING – 3 class sessions
WITH VIRGINIA MACK
FEE: $40/session – Advance sign-up required
With a pencil, a drawing pad, and a smile on your face, you are ready!
This series of classes will allow you to gain the skills you need to capture what you see with accuracy and spirit.
In each class, we will address a specific area of drawing, and as you proceed, you will gain confidence and mastery.
We will use a variety of media (samples provided,) and will develop both sketching and drawing techniques. Skill areas will include understanding basic drawing processes, the techniques used with each medium, use of elements (line, shape, volume, value, color, and texture) in developing naturalistic subjects, and principles of composition. The class is designed for both beginners and those with developing drawing skills already in place.

WORKSHOP: PRINT MAKING
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13TH
RELIEF PRINTING WORKSHOP
WITH TRICIA REICHERT
Many of the prints that you will see on the walls in this Printmaking exhibit are relief prints. Come along to my workshop to try your hand at making a relief print.
What is a Relief Print?
Relief printing is achieved by rolling ink onto the surface of a carved block. The areas that are carved away will not print, but those shapes of the image that are left will accept the ink and form the final print. The print will be a mirror image of what you see on your printing block!
Come and learn how to design, carve and print a block (relief) print. Any subject can be adapted to work for this printmaking process. Bring along your ideas for the subject, or choose from a variety of mine for this project.
Carving the design is very easy on this soft rubber block and water-based inks will be used in this workshop.
Rubber print block – you can buy your block when you come to the workshop
Carving tools – (I have some extra carving tools, but not enough for everybody)
To enroll, contact Tricia by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 805-473-8961
