In this course, students of all levels of artistic skills will create egg-tempera paintings by exploring forgotten medieval techniques of making Byzantine icons.

In following this historical art form, students will paint next a “personal icon” on a wood-panel based on images and visual composition of their chose.

Lithography: Stone and Polyester Plates, Intro-inter, Tues, 6 - 9 pm, start date: 09/13/2022

With some computer savvy, artists can use their photographs to create and print images with polyester plates.

Sculpture 201: Mold-making and Casting, Inter-adv, Mon 6 - 9 pm`, start date: 09/19/2022
This course is designed to offer students an understanding of the technical and creative aspects of sculpture and mold making. In this course, we can bring anything you can imagine to life.

With greater access to new technologies and materials, the casting and mold making industry continues to evolve into new areas. Modern sculptors are able to use mold making to create plaques, wax creations and candles, realistic museum pieces, movie props and prosthetic limbs. Mold making is even used by chefs and bakers to create custom chocolates and sugar sculptures. More than ever, this industry really gives you the freedom to create any sculpture you can imagine.

During this course, students will learn some of the basics of mold making, casting copies and what to consider when sculpting pieces for mold making. Together we will work through the planning stages of creating a sculpture and the process of making a mold and how to casting to achieve the best results.

Portrait and Figure: From Sketch to Detail, Inter-Adv, Tues, 6 - 9 pm, start date: 09/20/2022
Linear drawing and sketching are the base on lines and an excellent drawing technique and a way of gaining hand control over the line, honing fine motor skills.
Tonal drawing, more often used by painters because their perception of colour and tone, is often based on play of various masses of a tone different in saturation and configuration.
And, of course, there is a complex approach to drawing with the use of both techniques.

Succession in drawing will result in certain benefits: eye training, ability to catch movement, proportions and composition at once, without prolonged and sometimes tiresome process.

Students will work in any medium they feel inspired to use (e.g., Drawing, painting, photography, etc.) The course is designed to free the student/artist, using the prompts and guidance in the class, to reconnect with who they are and how they fit in this world and with other human beings.

FULL: Perspective Drawing, Intro-inter, Mon, 6 - 8 pm, start date: 10/24/2022
This top 8-week drawing class is essential for anyone getting ready for a painting workshop, applying to an architectural or animation college program. Or if you simply wish to understand the rationale behind the discipline, this is your class.

A series of exercises, homework, and challenges will sharpen your visual perception of various perspective drawing components: horizon line, ground line, vanishing points, proportions, the real vs. the virtual, etc. The notion of depth will become more than accurate, hence making your art more lifelike. At the end of the course, you will be able to immediately transfer your ideas from your imagination directly on paper.

Of course, there are thousands of short video clips on the Net and many how-to books on the question, but perspective drawing is a discipline that you will certainly enjoy with an instructor on your side, for it will be much easier to understand.

This unique online | in-person perspective drawing class aims to provide you with a solid notion of perspective, so you can become more confident as an artist.
