FINDING THE WRITER WITHIN

with Linda Maria Steele

(THIS CLASS HAS BEEN CANCELLED)

Finding the Writer Within invites writers of all levels and interests an opportunity to explore different writing genres in a supportive writing community. Participants are encouraged to write a short piece of fiction, non-fiction, or poetry each week based on a prompt provided by the instructor to share with the group and receive guidance and feedback. It is a productive, creative, yet laid back class and students are invited to choose the format that works for them under the prompts and direction I provide.  I designed the course in such a way that it is simple in structure yet powerful in its effect toward inspiring writers and other creatives to develop a daily practice and confidence as a writer. Bring a pen and blank paper to class.

Art skills you will learn include composition, foreground/background and where to begin, and creating the illusion of depth and perspective in your paintings.

Drawing skills include how to transfer a drawing to a canvas (3 methods) value scales and value sketching, and starting with simple shapes. Learn how to mix and match color, and make your own color wheel. Learn how to use different brushes and what they are for, as well as tools like sea sponge and palette knife. Learn how to use sighting to draw in perspective and self evaluate your own work to build on your strengths and minimize your weaknesses. Great class for learning the basics!

DRAWING WITH SHAWN DELL

Limited Series Class:

 Learn how to draw exactly what you see from direct observation. Shawn Dell Joyce teaches you how to see, identify and draw five values from light to dark. Start with single object studies and move to multiple objects in a still life. Create the illusion of dimensionality through values and sketching. Learn proportion and using simple sighting to create the illusion of depth and perspective in your drawings. Also learn the laws of proportion with human head and how to draw portraits, and finally put it all together and make a drawing based on your own subject.

This course is based upon Betty Edward’s book;

“Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.”

PASTEL FIGURES IN THE LANDSCAPE
ONLINE CLASS

January 12th, 19th, 26th

Create a series of figures in landscapes. You get to choose which figures you wish to use (photos of grandchildren playing in the surf?) or work from provided photos. Shawn demonstrates how to combine a reference photo of a figure with a reference photo of a landscape and integrate the two. Learn tips for adjusting lighting and shadows, creating lost and found edges and making the figure look natural. We will be doing a series of three paintings. Great class for anyone wishing to paint figures into their landscape or plein air paintings.

(Note: this class series is designed for intermediate and advanced artists, may be too difficult for those who don’t have basic pastel techniques.)
