Will you start art in 2019? Here are new January Art Classes at Articipate: Intro to Art, by Deb Kobayashi; Watercolor Magic, by Steve Gamburd; Acrylic Painting, by Liz Frankland; and Still Life Drawing & Design, by Dan Keller. Link for details.
You know you need art, but where do you start? Here! at Intro to Painting & Drawing. In 5 weeks, we’ll explore watercolor painting, acrylic painting, oil painting, plus a short drawing practice each week to develop skills and comfort. Tuesday evenings, 7:00-9:00pm, beginning January 8, 2019. $119 materials included.
Join local artist Liz Frankland for a 5-week class on acrylic painting. Frankland, who is based in Berkley, is an award winning painter with a love of mid-century modern design, everyday spaces, and interiors filled with light and shadow.
Frankland will demonstrate how to create a scene that is loose but realistic in style, and how to find the point where detail can be expressed accurately yet abstract. Students are asked to bring 2-3 inspirational images to work from and will leave at the end of the class with their own painting. And don’t worry about a cluttered photo! Frankland will help students navigate what to highlight and minimize in the final work.
Next class: Wednesday evenings, beginning January 9, 2019 from 6:00-8:00pm. A materials list will be provided to registered students prior to class. We must have minimum 5 students or the class will be cancelled. Register on the calendar page.
