Demo Painting Series — this is a series of acrylic landscape paintings prepared for a home exhibit for realtors, designers and their clientele. The paintings were done as demonstration paintings while teaching landscape and still life painting. The showings will be in the East Mountains Oct 16th & 17th. The paintings are centered around points of interest and places in NM. Paintings are 10″x8″ on canvas framed and matted 11×14.

Vivid colors juxtaposed against warm and cool hues, mixed with a complimentary pallete, bring the landscape alive and gives one a sense of place in New Mexico.  Shape, form, texture, all plays an integral part of the artworks.

Course Proposal and Syllabus: 

Session 1

Born to Draw: A Children’s Drawing Program

The Born to Draw program is designed for children in grades K-6th. The Children’s Spring Workshop will be for children 7-11 years of age. The course is designed to teach observational drawing though shape relationships. The students will learn formal elements of drawing such as mark making, line, shape, placement, angels, textures, value, color, and perspective. Session A runs from January 26 to March 2, 2013

Each class is geared for the child to complete a drawing within the allotted 40-50 minutes or less time frame. The Born to Draw Step-by-Step Drawing program features animals and still life. Children should know basic shapes of the square, triangle, circle and oval. I encourage parents to have their children attend both sessions. Session B runs from March 23 to April 27

The classes will be offered for two 50-minute sessions with a five-minute break and time for set up and clean up included in the class.  Total length of class time is 2 hours.

Drawing and Art Techniques

Depending on the age and the child’s development and skill levels, it is possible to evolve into another session for a continuum of developing drawing skills.  Throughout the class the children will experiment with different media that include watercolor, color pencil,  pen and ink.

Painting by Cezanne Still Life – 1890-94 oil on canvas

Session 2

Drawing Still Life

Drawing from 3D objects increases your children’s knowledge of the effects of light on form, volume and line. Observational drawing teaches one to learn to see. Students will work with still-life setups, start with simple materials and compositions, then move to more complicated media exploring textures and concepts. This is a great class to begin studies in art or to improve drawing skills.

Painting of Giorgio Morandi Modern still life

In this session the students will be introduced to great master artists like Cezanne, Matisse, Morandi, O’Keeffe and Steir.

The second session builds on the first session, however, all beginning drawers are welcome.  Beginners who have not had the Born to Draw classes’ prior will start with the curriculum of the first session.
