Fundamentals of Art Class

 

 

 

Always wanted to learn how to draw but didn't think you could? Or are you an experienced artist wanted to firm up some fundamentals or try something new? This is the class for you!

For beginners - we start with simple still life set-ups to learn fundamentals of drawing. Yes, it will be a lot of cups and bowls and apples at first, but it is necessary to use simple objects in order to be able to understand the tools you will be given. These tools will let you draw anything you want once we're through with the basics. We move on to learning tones to create volume and depth. From there, work continues into portraits to pull it all together. From there, you tell me where you want to go. It will take 3-6 months to go through these levels, depending on your comprehension and attendance. But it's worth spending the time learning the basics so you can then apply them to everything else!

For experienced artists - It's up to you as to what you'd like to do. Always wanted to try watercolor? Need to brush up on color theory? Want to create your own comic book? Need help learning anatomy and get better at drawing people? Let me know and I'll make a plan so you can get better!

Although this is a group class, every student works at their own pace and receives individual attention. Class size is limited.

Class is open to everyone ages 15 through 115. All you need is enthusiasm!

Class fee: $45 per class, discount available for monthly payments in advance. No refunds. Classes must be cancelled 24 hours in advance for credit for the following month.

ABCs of Self-Publishing

 

 

 

 


Monday, April 22 at 7:00 PM

Do you have a novel you've always wanted to write? A clever book of short stories you think are ... clever? A travelogue of that trip through Thailand where you met the most amazing people? Even a children's book that you think just MUST be out there?

 

That's great. Now what?

 

Writing is the easy part. Figuring out how to put your book up on Amazon or any other online publisher is the hard part, especially if you're not well-versed in technology.

 

Instructor Susan lee will walk you through the things you need to think about before you get too far into your masterpiece - formatting, style, tips and tricks for presentation. You'll learn about using templates that are up on Amazon and how to fit your work into those things. You'll learn what a template is! Susan will also talk about how and why it's important to have an editor go over your work before you publish, not just one of your friends. Susan will also talk about marketing and how to get the word out about your book.

 

Bring your questions and Susan will try to answer them!

 

Susan's usual consultation fee is $75 an hour. However, this workshop is only $30 in advance or $35 at the door! Sign up today to reserve your spot.

 

No refunds. Please arrive on time as the workshop will begin promptly at 7.
