Due to drying and firing times, pottery will be ready to pick up 10-12 days after the class session is finished.  Please note that children under 7 cannot use a wheel independently as they are not strong enough and must share a wheel with an adult!

Painting Pet Portraits
Thursdays, November 17
December 1, 8, 15
(No class November 24)
6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
With Annette Mehr
$170 + materials list
For teens/adults ages 14+.
Working in the student's choice of paint medium (oil, acrylic, or watercolor), Annette will teach students how to successfully paint a pet portrait. Students will learn how to break down the figure of a pet or animal into basic shapes to help take the fear of inaccurately depicting the subject. Using photographic references, learn how to simplify the subject's form, which is a valuable skill in drawing/painting and can be applied to still life's and the human figure. Students will learn portrait and painting techniques to capture the likeness of animals, and become more comfortable with their favored paint medium, discovering new skills in painting and drawing. Students should come to class with photographic references of the pet or animal they would like to paint. Teens 14+ are welcome to enroll.

The Field

With Maggie Willis
$13, BYO artwork.
For adults ages 17+.
The Field is a peer-to-peer forum for artists to share work and exchange feedback. The Fieldwork method reveals how each piece is perceived by others and fosters a detailed information exchange that is both efficient and supportive.  Unique to Fieldwork's structure is use of only non-suggestive feedback sharing - a fun challenge that develops communication skills.  Insightful and stimulating critiques are guided by an experienced facilitator. Artists working in any medium (performing, visual, new media, craft, folk art, design, literary, music) are invited to attend, the groups are aesthetically diverse. Fieldwork is effective for beginning, emerging, and established artists. Participants may share completed works or works-in-progress. By practicing Fieldwork, artists benefit from; expanding feedback skills across disciplines, other artists, jump starting their practice, making progress on developing projects, audience building, and gain an understanding of how and what their work communicates to viewers.
