This class will take you on a survey journey into an exploration of different art media, introducing you to pencil, watercolor, acrylic, collage, and pastel. Some of the projects may include mixed media techniques, such as combining watercolor, crayon and paper collage, while others will focus on just one media, such as acrylic painting. The projects are inspired by a wide range of artists such as Claude Monet, Gustave Klimt, and Paul Klee. These assignments can be used as jumping off points for your own inspiration, using your own photos, book illustrations, or magazine photos to create your own composition. Or you can use the art demonstrations as a guide to help you feel more comfortable with the specific media. This is a class for those who want to study a variety of subjects, such as landscapes, and still life. This course is a skills-based course meant for beginners and those with some skills. Whether or not you complete an entire project during the class will depend on your level of skill. A supply list will be provided to the students at least one week prior to the start of the course. Supplies costs may vary but could average $100/student.
