Liz Frankland, Past Time: artist reception

July 27, 6:30pm-8:30pm. Experiencing the paintings of Liz Frankland, the viewer can almost feel the breeze entering through the screen door. For the last three years, Liz has been exploring the connection between the past and present; how we see and connect with the people and places that shape our lives. Her yesteryear scenes pull at the heart in a pleasing way.  Liz Frankland is a graduate of CCS, BFA. All the art in this show is for sale and will be on display from  July 16 through August 31.

Intro to Painting and Drawing

fun drawing exercise
Blind contour drawing self portraits

August 15. Wednesday, 7:00-8:30pm

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.
