Then we will further develop a realistic artwork by exploring and applying hatching in a variety of ways. Although this class will utilize pencil as the medium, the content knowledge of the class is directly applicable to all painting and drawing media. This class can be accomplished with literally one pencil, eraser, and paper. However, the ideal essential materials are a variety of Pencils, HB-6B, erasers, and sketch pad (approximately 11” x 14).

Lesson : August 9th Hard Edge Seascape Drawing
This innovative online class will focus on drawing a solid hard-edge composition. Historically, hard-edge art was created in the medium of painting. We will challenge this unique art style through the medium of pencil. Also, this approach will challenge students to develop different levels of a value scale to provide emphasis. As a class, we will gain an understanding of the class concepts through a brief lecture and Power Point. In order to achieve this experience, students will follow teacher lead instruction. Although this class will utilize pencil as the medium, the content knowledge of the class is directly applicable to all painting and drawing media. This class can be accomplished with literally one pencil, eraser, and paper. However, the ideal essential materials are a variety of Pencils, HB-6B, erasers, and sketch pad (approximately 11” x 14”).

Lesson : August 16th Hard Edge Drawing, Take 2
This innovative online class will focus on drawing a solid hard-edge composition. Historically, hard-edge art was created in the medium of painting. We will challenge this unique art style through the medium of pencil. As in the previous week, we will focus on art of simplification and flat solid shapes to develop a realistic composition. It is recommended, but not required to take the August 10th class, as this is a more slightly independent approach to this topic. Students will use their own reference for this lesson. Although this class will utilize pencil as the medium, the content knowledge of the class is directly applicable to all painting and drawing media. This class can be accomplished with literally one pencil, eraser, and paper.

Paint your Pet! Challenge yourself to capture a pet’s personality. Bring a photograph AND a photocopy to create a grid to accurately transfer the likeness to the painting or drawing.
Get creative while you paint your favorite pet or animal! Choose your favorite pet picture (an 8 x 10 if possible) and draw (or trace) it on the paper or canvas that meets your needs. In a short demonstration using acrylic paints, Jacki will model how to identify the different values in her photo – the lights, mediums, or darks. Using acrylic, watercolor, pastel, or oil paint – your choice – we’ll mix and apply those values and colors to create a realistic portrait.
Please bring your own material, or you can rent a kit from the instructor for a $10 fee to be paid directly to instructor.

There will be a wide variety of watercolor techniques that will be discussed and demonstrated including positive and negative painting, composition, using creative colors, glazing, charging color, and many more. We will begin each day with a demonstration painting that will be finished before lunch. The daily demonstration will be different each day so that you will see a wide variety of subject matter and styles including landscapes, floral, stylized, and abstract. My preferred method of painting is to use large brushes for most of the painting and complete the painting with a small amount of details towards the end using smaller brushes. The end result is a watercolor painting that is loose and fresh with expressive brushwork. Following lunch each student will have the afternoon to work on their own painting with assistance when needed. There are no requirements as to what subject the student paints or what size they prefer to paint.

In-Person: 4-Day Watercolor Impressions: Flowers, Faces and Figures with Janet Rogers

Cost: $425 Members, $530 Non-Members, plus $10 model and flower fee, which will be collected first day of workshop
Please register by 04/04/2021!

Fresh flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for the beginning of this dynamic workshop – progressing to the head and figure. Through a series of fun painting exercises, students will develop a more loose and natural approach – giving them an opportunity to be more spontaneous and expressive in their paintings. In our approach to learning how to interpret the head and figure, we will learn to express translucent flesh tones, while focusing on the gesture of the person. Painting children will also be covered. Although we will work primarily from photos, we may have an opportunity to work from a model for a short period, so bring your
camera! Besides class demonstrations throughout the workshop, Janet will work individually with each person also, making sure they understand the painting concepts – a truly “hands on” experience. Focusing on discovering how to control and making dynamic color, design and expression, we will also have “Show and Tell” – an opportunity to share and see how we exceed in our expectations!!!
