    Having objective eyes on your work in progress can be very helpful and sometimes result in just the right direction to enable the artist to forge ahead. Assessments of abstract work allows the artist to gain insight and different perspectives. In this 5-week critique based class, students will present finished or works in progress for review each week. Suggested weekly abstract projects will be outlined by the instructor. Students should use preferred materials. Artwork will be submitted digitally to the instructor each week to be included in an online presentation for best viewing for the entire class. Abstraction is about respecting the past, being in the present and creating a future. Let the art discussion commence!

    Who doesn’t love a cupcake? Join artist Peggy Nichols in this 2-day workshop to learn to work quickly, getting the essentials of the subject (a cupcake) down while applying bold and dynamic techniques in pastel. Inspired by the 1960’s Pop Artist, Wayne Thiebaud, the workshop will focus on this simple and sweet form to explore the pastel palette, blending and layering colors with both broad strokes and scumbling techniques. We will also experiment with working on different surfaces for unique effects. All that and more! For more information please contact Peggy at peggynichols1@mac.com .

     The gesture of the entire figure can begin and end with the hands and feet. This four-day Zoom workshop will address the common fear of drawing hands and feet. Students will learn how to methodically build-up foundational shapes, and address the complex, abstract shape of the subject, then tonally describe the forms within the confines of the contour. The focus is on patience, craft, observation, and understanding of drawing principles. Students at all levels are welcome. Please sign up early, enrollment is limited.

    Get a fresh look and capture the essence of the landscape quickly. Spend Saturday morning with Alice Webb and learn to move fast and use gesture to create studio landscapes. Working from a photo students will learn to stay loose, a skill in itself and of ultimate importance. This practice will also enhance your ability to catch the fleeting light when painting en plein aire. Working with the medium of your choice you will make one or two small paintings. Bring to the workshop a photo of a landscape that you love. You will receive an email a week prior to class giving you an idea of what to look for when choosing your image. The first hour of the workshop will be a demonstration by Alice followed by three hours of painting time during which time Webb will “circle the Zoom room” to provide individual instruction. Please sign up early; class size is limited.
