"Fall in Love with Palette Knife Painting in Oils or Acrylics"
Thursdays, February 4-25, 2021
 

Join Art League instructor Alex Sharma for this 4-week palette knife class for all levels of students. We often think that the palette knife will only be useful for painting highly textured subjects or for working in a thick, impasto method. Imagine beautiful, smooth water with reflections, dramatic skies-- and everything in between. Once you learn how to hold and to load your palette knife with paint, these effects will seem to happen automatically as you paint. Each class will start with a demonstration and practice using a palette knife. We will paint from life or from your own photos.

"Drawing and Design with Chris Dreyer"
February 16-18, 2021
 

Think drawing is a "gift" that has to come "naturally"? You would be surprised to see that it is actually a skill like any other. Let Chris Dreyer show you how easily it can be learned. Drawing is as much about learning how to see and think about form and space as it is about technique. Drawing also gives you a deeper understanding of the subject you are trying to capture. As you progress through the exercises in this class, you will develop a better understanding of the forms you are observing and become more skillful in representing those forms.
