March 10 – Drawing with Ginger Cullins
In this class the student will learn how to draw the basic geometric shapes along with techniques to measure for drawing proportionally. Also being taught will be shading to show form using graphite pencils and a value scale. The student will be able to complete a drawing using all of these techniques.

March 17 – Mixed Media with Al Zirkel
This mixed media module will use pre-painted canvas boards as a base. Students will then cut out and attach images on their boards creating an interplay between the background and foreground collaged images. All supplies will be provided, however individuals are encouraged to bring items they would like to include in their collage compositions.

This is a great class for someone new to painting or for the artist wanting to explore the basics of acrylic painting.
