with Wendy L. Seelhoff
Join instructor Wendy Seelhoff in a 6 week class to explore the foundations of drawing that help artists become great painters. Drawing is the alphabet of all good art, and a successful painting is based on an accurate drawing. Drawing as an art in itself requires a long period of dedication. In this workshop, Wendy will be concentrating only on the areas of drawing that support good painting habits. She will go through how to use values, lines vs planes, space relationships, constructing 3D objects on a 2D surface, thumbnails and notans, and 1 point perspective. These are the knowledge base necessary to create a great looking painting and knowing these elements of drawing will make painting much more enjoyable.

Have you ever wanted to start an artist’s journal but didn’t know where to begin? Do you often find yourself just wanting to sit down and sketch or experiment with new materials, without the pressure to plan a full-scale painting? Are you a creative person, wanting to expand your creative practice, sharpen your drawing skills or expand your visual observation skills? Then this class is for you!
In this 2-day workshop, you will learn to create your own artist journal using watercolors and waterproof pens. We will explore various additional materials and techniques as well as a variety of types of journals you may wish to try.
This workshop is for anyone from beginners to advanced artists, but you must have a basic understanding of drawing and painting with watercolors.
