Medieval Inspired Watercolor Painting

You read that right!  In this watercolor class, we will take our inspiration right out of 12th century manuscripts that were illuminated with incredibly detailed paintings of flora, fauna, fruits, seeds and whimsical zoomorphic creatures!  The first class we will focus on exploring and getting comfortable with the techniques and methods of watercolors followed by admiring and creating our own Medieval inspired masterpiece paintings – without all the hard work of preparing vellum or grinding our own paints!  This class is suitable for beginners through advanced artists.

Please bring the following Materials:

Watercolors

gouache (opaque watercolors)

mixed media or watercolor paper 11×14 is good size
pencils/erasers
assortment of paint brushes
fine tipped “Pen & Ink” pens such as Micron Pigma (unless, of course, you have some quill pens or very large feathers to prepare!)
paper towels

Winter Afterschool Art Lessons 2

Observe the beauty of winter for youth ages 8&up through the joy of drawing & painting while utilizing a variety of quality artists materials.  Warm-ups will consist of each season’s ever changing natural bounty of beauty followed by projects inspired by your artist!  Students will be guided through the artistic process according to each individual’s needs & abilities. Classes will begin with a warm-up “quick-sketch” of a still life, and then transition into varied projects including a few seasonal “surprises”.  Older and more advanced students (as well as continuing students) will gain experience learning how to see and think like an artist through time-tested exercises coupled with projects that offer the opportunity to put their skills to use. Improved observation skills will go far beyond art class and spill over into every subject of theirs at school. Lessons will develop the artists eye and hand while exposing students to varied art materials and practices.  Students love this class and develop a strong artistic camaraderie!  Enrollment is limited. Students will be encouraged to enter local shows.  *mature seven year olds may join the 4:30pm class. Private art studio in Middlebury CT.

I will share that we have a cat that believes she has an important greeting role for my art students. If your youth isn’t comfortable, I will help “Miss Beauty”  find something else to do so that your artist feels comfortable.
