Explore techniques for drawing the eyes, nose, and mouth and how to develop the features and proportions of the face through demos and working from live models in each class. Learning the basics will allow you to explore your own style as you develop your practice. Some drawing experience is recommended.

Enhance your painting with the addition of beautiful hand-dyed papers! Create unique landscapes, portraits, and abstract works with techniques that will change the way you see your paintings. We will start by dyeing our papers in our chosen color schemes, creating hues that transition from dark to light or bright to dull, and even our own patterned papers! Then we will add these to our paintings to create more space, incorporate subtle color usage, and add textures.
