Simple Sketch
Wildflower Festival Art Classes

Add to your calendar
Date: July 20, 9:15 am
Details: Simple Sketch Series
Have you always wished you could do a quick sketch of that wildflower but felt inhibited? This “Simple Sketch ©” technique is designed to help everyone find enjoyment in the process of learning to look more closely and work with basic art materials to capture the essence of an object. We will play with pens, watercolor and pencils and practice developing confidence and coordination! All materials except for a personal sketchbook or art journal will be provided; the instructor will have some for sale at the beginning of the class for those who wish to purchase a book. This class is offered for 4 weeks in a row on Fridays, with different topics each week. Feel free to pick and choose, or take all four and receive a package discount on the series!

Instructor: Judith Cassel-Mamet.
Time: 9:15 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. $90/class or $340 for all 4 weeks.

Weekly Topics:
Friday, July 20:  Clouds
Friday, July 27:  Architecture
