May 17, 24, 31-PAINTING WATER in MOTION In Watercolor w/Pen & Ink by KAREN BERG
Painting waterfalls, rivers and ocean scenes is exciting. Karen will show you how to use shape, size, line and color to create the movement of water. Along with these elements of design, rhythm, texture, proportion and value help to develop mood and unify compositions into a painting of water in motion. In this class you will study the movement of water, use warm and/or cool colors, mix “water” colors, work with washes to keep water “wet”and blurred. Demonstrations of techniques, resources and step-by-step instruction are provided. All levels of watercolor artists are welcome. No experience needed. Projects are provided, or you can compose or bring your own. Materials for use in class will be furnished including professional grade paper and paint; however, bring your own brushes.  Contact Karen for supply lists, updates, questions at karens8147@gmail.com or text 503-341-7846.

May 12, 26, June 2, 9, 23-BASIC DRAWING CLASS taught by KATHY HANEY
Think you can’t draw? Want to improve your drawing skills? Would you like to sketch images as you travel? Do you want to Improve your painting, printmaking and sculpture skills? If so, this is the class for you. If you can write, you can draw. Drawing is the basic form of expression that we have used since caveman days. As children we drew images to share stories and ideas. We used simple symbols to represent the images and ideas. At some point, most people become frustrated that these symbols are limited and want to draw more lifelike images. Having already developed the necessary dexterity skills, the task is to learn to “see” in a more objective way. Learning to “see” is the focus of this class.

This class will build on the skills you already have - even if you think you have none. You will learn various types of drawing: imaginary, gesture, contour, value and perspective drawings.We will use various drawing tools: graphite, charcoal, conte crayon, felt pen and pen and ink.

Supply List:

a 9"x12" sketchbook
a couple of pencils with a range of softness (B means soft and H means hard) a 4B 2B and 2H is fine to start with. Staedlers make a good set of drawing pencils.
 a couple of erasers - art gum, kneaded and vinyl make a good selection
 a drawing board about 18" x 24" - a rigid piece of plexiglass, plywood or foam core board will work. You can purchase a "gatorboard" that is like foam core board but is also water resistant so can be used for watercolor, too.
 an 18" metal ruler
 a hand pencil sharpener
 a water based felt pen
 a fine point Sharpie and an ultra fine point Sharpie (permanent)
 a Crow Quill ink pen and a bottle of India ink. Kathy has, in the past, found drawing kits at  both Michael's and Craft Warehouse that include a variety of pencils, erasers, and sharpeners for a reasonable price.
Kathy will provide drawing paper for class activities, charcoal and conte crayons. Saturdays, 9:30-12:30, $150/5 classes.*
