Imaginative Art & Illustration


with Christine Mitzuk

Calendar Jan 25, 2024 at 7 pm, runs for 14 weeks

Hybrid Class (Students may attend either in-person or via Zoom.)

Explore your imagination! In this class you will be coached through the imaginative art making process used by many artists for personal and professional commission work: idea generation, preparatory work (sketches and value design, reference, and color studies), and on to a final picture. Emphasis is placed on intent, and visual narrative. Christine’s teaching is tailored to the needs of each student, be it exploring personal themes or creating work for an illustration portfolio. Assignments can be provided or self-generated by students. Students may choose to work in the medium with which they are comfortable (digital or traditional). The first several classes will include lectures on the imaginative art process, composition, and color. During each class, work will be reviewed through Google Classroom or in-person as needed. Critiques and discussion will be done in a supportive group atmosphere. To use Google Classroom, you will need a Gmail account. This system is for class review of projects only. Limit 8 students.

Traditional Watercolor


with CeCeile Hartleib

Calendar Jan 30, 2024 at 6 pm, runs for 12 weeks

Hybrid Class (Students may attend either in-person or via Zoom.)

This class, for beginning and continuing students, covers traditional watercolor methods. Both layering of colors and wet-in-wet techniques are taught with emphasis on composition, value and color mixing. Students learn by doing master copies and then applying those techniques to their own works. Lots of instructor demos and friendly critiquing are part of this class.
