$85/per person, each session
Do you have a piece of art sitting in your closet because, well, there is just something about it that isn’t right? Maybe only partially finished? You created it yourself and it just didn’t turn out as you imagined? Or your mother gave you a piece she did and it isn’t what you’d hang on the wall as it is?
Or are you a beginner and simply want to learn to “do” art and experience the creativity and fun? But you want to do works that “have life?” Maybe start working with acrylics or oils?
Noted artist and teacher, Terry Dickinson can help. Using his 50 years of experience, he’ll help you understand the underlying art principles that make a composition shine and stand out from the crowd. Then he will provide individualized guidance as you practice these principles.
In this class Terry will provide instruction on getting started with a quality piece, give you the background on next steps and then guide you through an analysis of how you can make your art come alive!
Registrants will participate in a guided art lesson on technique and approaches to art that will be pertinent to all media types. Then each will work on individual projects of your choice. Terry will provide individual guidance to beginners and veteran artists alike.
Weather permitting, class may move out doors for a plein air experience!
Registrants will need to bring all materials – including, the piece to modify and the materials needed to work on it. So if it is an oil piece, bring your oils and brushes. If it is acrylics, bring the piece and your acrylic paints and brushes. If it is charcoals, or colored pencil, bring those.
Please bring a box lunch to enjoy.
Registrations are limited to 5 people to allow individualized assistance.
This class is open to all ages. It is open at all stages of learning art – beginner to experienced. Registrants only need to be able to remain engaged for the full class period.
If you have questions, please let us know on your registration.
Full refunds if AAV cancels the class. Refunds minus the processing fees up to seven days before class begins. No refunds after that time.
