B44321 Studies in Botanical Art: Focus on Houseplants
B44321 As our gardens go to sleep for the winter, our attention turns to our houseplants coming indoors after summering outside. Do you have a favorite you've tended for years? Something from a family member or friend? Succulents? Coleus? Geraniums? Cuttings rooting in a jar? They will be our models for this class. Bring your plant model to class (at least the first few classes) and work directly from the subject to develop the composition, colors, and values for your drawing. Painting and drawing techniques, design tips and current literature will be introduced as needed. Guidance on other individual projects will be available, too. Bring your botanical drawing and painting supplies and hot-pressed paper. Prerequisite: watercolor painting or drawing experience.

A46821 Drawing the Figure in Context
Figure drawing is a multifaceted and exciting venture for artists of all levels. In this class we will review traditional figure drawing skills and then take things one step further by integrating our figures into background compositions. In doing so we will bring realistic or imaginary context to the visual stories we are creating. The figurative work of artists such as Diebenkorn, Degas and Munch, who created expressive narration around their subjects, are examples of this approach. We will use both studio models in natural poses and/or photo references for our work. See suggested materials list on website.
