Notes:  

Until we no longer have the need to social distance due to Covid-19 this will be a virtual classroom with classes taught on Zoom.  Once you enroll you will receive an electronic invitation that contains a password and a link to the website.  If you do not have experience signing into Zoom sessions, don’t hesitate to give me a call after you receive your invitation and I’ll explain how it will work for you.  Be sure that you have the sound on your computer (phone, etc.) turned on before you try to sign in, otherwise we will not be able to hear you even if it appears on Zoom that  your microphone is turned on.

 

We will be able to be just as interactive and to see each other’s work as if we were in the classroom at the Art Center.  Please give it a try.

 




Continuing Watercolor 5

   ASU-332-G1   /  Wednesday, August 12, 19, 26

         Location: Virtual Class using Zoom
            Times: 9:00-11:00 a.m.

              Course Fee:
                Members: $105.00
                Non-Members: $120.00
Instructor: Elizabeth Greaf

This is a small class for people who have had some experience with watercolor, preferably at least an introductory class that taught them about watercolor materials and the basics of painting in watercolor.  In this class you will be doing paintings from your own photographs.  The instructor will work with the students as a group and individually during the class to help them further develop their skills.  She will help you plan your approach to your painting, give guidance on the drawing that you are starting with, and then advise, demonstrate, etc. on aspects of the painting wherever you may need her help.  When needed, she’ll use a class session for a concentrated lesson on some aspect of drawing/painting.  When she is working with one student, all are welcome to listen and ask questions as these questions offer a learning opportunity to all.   Get your materials list when you enroll.  If you have questions about items on the materials list, contact the instructor for information.  516 383-1137 or artbyeliz@gmail.com.

This class is one in which people who are working to continually improve their painting skills often enroll continuously.  People find not only the help of the instructor valuable but to continually take class with the same group of people creates an excellent support group for your painting endeavors.

How to Enroll:  Contact Janis Wood at  757-220-2217 to register and make payment.  For questions, contact Judy Leasure, Art Ed Coordinator, at leasure.judy@gmail.com or 757-941-4668.
