Art Classes

Fall 2018 Classes

Cartooning for Kids
Instructor: Lahri Bond
Dates: Begins Nov. 7, 8 weeks
Days: Wednesdays, 4 to 5:30 p.m.
Cost: $190 materials included
For ages 6 -10. While The Avengers, Wonder Woman, Spiderman, and Guardians of the Galaxy capture the imagination in popular movies and cartoons, their origins are in the simple line drawings, and fertile imaginations of young artists. We will explore the art of visual storytelling, beginning with learning to draw some of our favorite cartoon and comic characters, before inventing our own. Drawing instruction includes the use of pencil, inking, and coloring techniques to illustrate multi-paneled stories. We will also make our own masks, symbols, utility belts, and super-gear to become the actual superheroes we have drawn. Register now!

This studio is for both experienced pastel artists as well as people new to the medium, or any art, for that matter. No experience necessary! We will have weekly topics that you may choose to follow, or spin off on your own work.

If you’re fascinated with vibrant color and line work, and want to carve out some time to work with a new medium, Becky will introduce you to the immediate gratification of pastel. This class will allow you to explore subjects while building skill and confidence in your handling of the medium.

For beginners and for those with drawing experience, the sessions will include drawing exercises and opportunities to create finished artworks. They will also offer an open environment of sharing knowledge and posing questions with individual attention. Experienced pastel artists may work on their own, with as much input and feedback as wanted.

Topics for class discussions include composition, value ranges, perspective, color, and light. If you work from photographs or already have sketches or objects you wish to work with, please bring those along, and if you have your own materials you’re welcome to use them. All materials will be supplied. Register now!
