Contour Drawing Deep Dive With Artist: Armin Mersmann

Instructed by: Armin Mersmann
Dates: Dec. 10th-11th
Times: 10am-4pm
Member: $306, Non Member: $360

Artists including Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and David Hockney have used the expressive power of line to create some of their most iconic images. Contour drawing employs thick and thin lines, lost and found edges and keen observation to capture movement and light.

Line is fundamental to the arts, and contour drawing is the essence of description with line without shading. It is a beautiful and expressive art form which helps artists learn to see form with great accuracy. Students will study a variety of contour drawing styles and techniques in this two-day workshop.

Supply list to follow registration. All experience levels welcomed.


Impasto Oil Painting

Times: Fri. 6-9pm, Sat. 10am-4pm, Sun. 10-4pm
Member: $382.50, Non Member: $450

Students will work with artist, Todd Burroughs, for two days learning how to add movement, texture, and spontaneity to their paintings using impasto.

Impasto paintings stand out because of their dynamic and sculptural surfaces, but they are often painted in a technique that leads to unnecessary cracking and delamination. Todd will guide students through materials, mediums and techniques (including palette knife painting) that utilize best practices to achieve beautiful impasto results.

We are excited to offer this new workshop and expect the 10 available spots to fill quickly.
