Art School Crash Course! July Session

July 6 @ 6:00 pm - July 20 @ 8:00 pm PDT

Always wanted to go to art school, but never had the chance? This course is for you!

Always wanted to go to art school but never got the chance?? Here’s your opportunity to take a crash course on some of the most important lessons learned in a fun and distilled way!

Each week of this 4-week course will cover a different broad topic, with a short lecture and hands-on art activity to drive home the lesson’s concept. Weekly topics include: developing an artist’s eye through careful observation, color theory basics and how to use them to your advantage, spatial awareness and using grid drawing as a tool, and “make it darker”– the importance of value. Students will work in a variety of media in this fun and engaging course, some supplies provided.

Required Supply List:

  • Drawing pad– 18″x24″
  • Graphite drawing pencils and eraser
  • Vine Charcoal (medium-soft)
  • Kneaded eraser
  • Charcoal Blending Stumps (assorted)
