Instructor: Jody Holbert
In this three-hour class, adult students of all abilities will learn how to use linear perspective to create a sense of depth in their artwork. They will also develop an understanding of atmospheric perspective while using color and value in their artworks. They will build confidence and apply new knowledge while creating finished drawings using pencil, graphite, oil and chalk pastel, and graphic marker. Exhibition Focus: Permanent Collections and Museum architecture
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. Adult students may choose to exhibit their work in the Education Gallery in June.
