    Have you ever wanted to try painting but were too intimidated? Intrigued by color but reluctant to commit to the cost and care of oil painting? Whether you’ve dabbled in paints a couple of times or have never touched a brush to a canvas before, you will feel more confident & capable once you have explored the basics of color theory and familiarized yourself with materials and techniques while completing a painting from life. This five-session course will take you from creating a color wheel and learning about value and saturation of colors, to mixing and color matching, to painting a still-life. Don’t ever tell yourself you “can’t” do it–you can, with the right approach!  Materials list can be found below or if you have your own supplies, feel free to bring them to class instead.

    This class will cover the entire lettering process from pencil sketch to inked drawing to digital* finish. We'll start with the basics of drawing individual letterforms and work up to creating your own hand lettered illustrations based on briefs given in class each week. Chock full of tips and tools for creating concept-driven pieces, there will be in-class demonstrations and one-on-one instructor critiques. This class is perfect for beginners wanting to learn the basics as well as intermediate students looking to dive deeper into incorporating hand lettering in their professional work. Please bring materials to work in class each week: drawing paper, graph paper, pencils, fine and broad tip markers/Sharpies, tracing paper and ruler.
