Learn to Love Watercolors and Pastels

Recommended ages: 17+

Come to one or join both. Each session is considered a separate class. Class Description: I will discuss what elements to put in a painting, what to leave out, How to use photos as a reference, how to position subject matter on painting paper surface for the best visual impact. How to pick the proper size paper for the subject matter depicted. I will discuss outlets for students to sell art, including local business, art in parks, and the internet & of course local galleries. Also will discuss how to determine which pieces of art they produce have the best appeal to a large audience, therefore worth the investment to reproduce on note cards & prints.

Not Your College Pottery Class – Beginning Level!

Recommended ages: 17+

Adulting is hard! Take a break from your un-ending to-do list and join us for an easy, fun, and relaxed pottery class. Jump right in and start creating with clay on the very first day! Shannon has over 10 years of experience working with clay and would love to teach you the various methods of working with it (i.e., coil building, slab building, and (gasp!) wheel throwing). Each class includes instruction on methods and projects; at the end of the course series, you’ll walk away with your very own collection of unique clay creations! The main purpose of this class is to get you – yes you! – working with one of the most versatile art mediums available. I first found pottery in college and have been working with it on-and-off (because I’m a normal, busy person like you!) for over 10 years. I would love to teach you the basics of clay and show you various methods for working with it (i.e., coil building, slab building, and (gasp!) wheel throwing). We’ll start with the beginner basics and jump right into getting our hands dirty in the very first class. My goal is to get you creating with clay, therefore this class will be very hands-on (don’t worry – no quizzes or dense reading material). Each class, I’ll provide simple instruction on a method and project, and each week we’ll build on what we’ve learned. The sky is the limit! You are more than welcome to step outside the box and flex those creative muscles as you see fit; I am happy to help guide you on your unique creative journey. Also, feel free to BYOB!
