Instructor: Jody Holbert
Adult artists of all abilities will learn the basics of successful portrait drawing methods and apply them to creative explorations and finished works. Students will become familiar with a variety of black and white and color arts media.
Informal, informative, and inspiring hands-on art classes with changing themes provide a unique focus for adult learners of all ages and abilities to engage in Museum-based art education and creative exploration. Permanent collections balanced with changing exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of artists, art forms, and processes. Opportunities for individualized instruction, observation, practice, experimentation, and the development of a personal style are at the core of all of our adult art classes. Instructional projects vary throughout the year; most students attend for consecutive sessions. Adults who participated in our art classes last year will bring new insights and find new challenges in this year’s series of programs.
