Somewhat similar to previous line and wash classes, but this one will have a theme – The Textures And Colour of Fall. We will cover landscape, still life and florals and maybe even attempt a few animals i.e. squirrels. This class will be for all skill levels so if you are new to line and wash I will have some simple projects but for the advanced, I will challenge you with more intricate and challenging projects. This is a great way to start off the season.

EASY AND SIMPLE MONO PRINTING
This short but sweet class will be an adventure for the student that likes to try something new. It’s fast and easy, no fuss, no muss, no press. You will learn how to make monotype prints anytime, anywhere. All you need is a plate or surface and either watercolor or acrylic paints for you inks or if you like you can use printmaking inks. It is considered to be the painters print because it is more like painting than printing. Keep in mind that you can do a lot of prints in a short time. So you may consider them as a jumping off point or a finished product. Some of you will love them and others you may not. But I haven’t been disappointed yet. Come try your hand with this fascinating medium where your imagination is the limit.
