9/15 Barbara Pickles, Phonography:
It is often said that the “best camera is the one you have with you”. For many of us that will be the camera on our mobile phone. In this class we’ll learn how to take great pictures with the camera on your phone. By applying basic photography ideas and using free and inexpensive apps you can create amazing images with the camera a on your phone. From portraits to landscapes to creative images, this class will give you basic tips and tools to work with.
9/22 Peggy Pownall, Mixed Media:
Combining painting, drawing, collage and our unleashed creativity, we will experience a dialogue between materials and imagination! While exploring what we want to “say” in our artwork, we will literally incorporate words into our visual expressions. It will be the artist’s choice whether you want to clarify or mystify – or perhaps both!
9/29 Gretel Compton, Print Making:
Printmaking is one of the most recently developed art forms. it allows for countless ways to experiment and play! This class will be using the press for two types of printmaking; monoprint and relief printmaking. We will create art with inks on plexiglass plates, and run it through the press. Then we will make a relief plate with hot glue, ink that and print it on our first monoprint. Let’s create!
