We will be drawing Botanical Subjects during this 7-week class. Botanicals can cover many different species. During this class, we will practice drawing Flowers, Leaves, and Fungai using photocopies and live specimens. We will tentatively schedule a field trip to either a local Farmers Market or a Nursery where we can collect and photograph fresh subjects and draw on-site, following masking and social distancing protocols, and the preference of the registered students. Our group of artists will use colored pencils, pastels, graphite or ink, or a combination of multi-media to execute their artwork.
The class will meet via Zoom on Wednesdays 10am-1pm. Students will need a tablet, a laptop, or desktop computer with video and microphone features to interact with the class. An art supply list will be available thru Cont. Ed. office.
You understand the basics of how your camera works. Now, you’re ready to dig in and start creating images that have more impact. Join professional photographer and facilitator Lara Grauer and explore topics such as: lighting, composition, color theory, and story-telling in a collaborative online environment. You’ll learn how to put these elements into practice and approach your photography intentionally so your work begins to reflect the images you see in your mind. Each week, you’ll practice a new idea that builds on your previous knowledge. Bit by bit, you’ll become a more deliberate photographic artist.
Prerequisites: Students must have a DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) or mirrorless camera with both automatic and manual controls, and the ability to remove and switch out lenses. (Only 1 lens is needed, but it must be removable.) Students will also need the ability to transfer images to a device - either by using a cable connection or a memory card reader - to share their work.
It’s been such an unusual year and many of our annual travel plans have been cancelled and disrupted, delayed for the foreseeable future. However, we all have memories of our favorite places and can access our most treasured recollections of those places, using our photos, augmented by the internet. In this class, let’s travel virtually to each of our most favorite places and draw aspects of those locations that so delight us. We’ll individually select landscapes or views of those special locations, populated by people we met or knew, or perhaps enhanced by creatures we enjoyed, buildings and structures that remind us of their special qualities that bring us happiness. Art supply list will be available thru Cont. Ed. office. Class held on Zoom.
No class Monday May 31st
