Coloring Outside the Lines

November 4, 2016@6:00 pm-November 25, 2016@7:30 pm


Love the art you make! Through simple drawing exercises, freestyle coloring, naming and context, you will make your work of art more than just a piece of paper.

This is a four-week workshop of fun times! Classes will be held on Friday evenings during the month of November, and will start at 6pm and end at 7:30 pm. Please bring a sketchbook, any size that speaks to you, and a couple of pencils and pens. Everything else will be provided. Class sizes are limited.

Our first Friday, November 3, 2016, is called “Simple Drawing Exercises.” We will work on contour, negative space and gesture drawing from a still life. Everybody can draw! We will also unleash our inner artist with doodles and automatic drawing.

On our second Friday, November 11, 2016, “Using Color,” we will test out our favorite color palettes on sample pieces and doodles. We will also learn how to layer colors and have fun doing it.

On our third Friday, November 18, 2016, “Putting It Together,” we will pick out some of our drawings and will layer them with variations of the color palettes we worked on the previous week.

On our last Friday, November 25, 2016, “Our Maestro Piece,” we will pick out one drawing which we have saved for last, add color and then name the piece. We will write a special note or message to ourselves about the piece. We can even let the piece speak for itself! However we do it, we will walk away with a unique piece of art brought forth from the well of our own inspiration!
