You don’t have to know how to draw to make art. In this 4 week class, we’ll skip the careful pencil drawings and start with a loose impressionistic painting. In three painting classes, we’ll explore acrylic, watercolor and oil paints. We’ll incorporate color, composition, shapes, lines, value and contrast as we go. The drawing class will follow; learning hand-eye coordination and finding shapes. Drawing is as much about learning how to see, as recording it. Most importantly, after four weeks, you will have learned to hush your inner critic and to consider yourself an artist. $92 for 4 weeks: 8/15, 8/22, 8/29, 9/5.

Composed and expressive, these women are the artist’s family, idols and models. Janis Wagoner attended the College of Art and Design now known as CCS. She enjoyed being part of the artist scene by working at the Detroit Artist Market. Janis was the recipient of numerous awards from the Michigan Watercolor Society and once had a solo show at the DIA. I am pleased to share these oil paintings (my mother’s) in the gallery until April 30th.
