Calligraphy II: The Italic Hand Uppercase Letters

Instructor: Michele Barnes
This course will build upon the material covered in Calligraphy I: Italic. Majuscules or Upper Case Italic letters are designed to go beautifully with the Lowercase or Minuscule letters. They stem from the Roman Capitals that are inscribed into the Trajan Column in Rome. You will be using the broad-edged marker as you study this portion of the Italic alphabet. In addition, you will be introduced to using a dip pen, which will give you a wider variety of effects. Students must have taken  Calligraphy I: Italic or be familiar with lowercase italics.

Mixed Media Combo

Instructor: Janet Lynn Eggen
Learn how to combine pen and ink with watercolor (and colored pencil if you choose) in a composition using your choice of subject matter of still life, landscape, or portrait.  Through demonstration, handouts and practice, pen and ink skills will be learned for embellishment or detail on a watercolor painting as well as color theory, mixing and blending, application, brushwork and composition. Focus will be first on acquiring knowledge of materials and techniques. The combined skills can be used in a sketchbook or journal or for any other artistic endeavor. Students will work from their own imagination, resource photos or other materials. Basic drawing experience in your choice of subject matter is necessary. Watercolor knowledge is useful, but not required.

Balance in Drawing and Painting

Instructor: James O’Connor
Want to take your artwork to the next level? Understanding the formal qualities of your work can be key. Balance is  the visual weight of objects, colors, textures, and space and can be the most challenging part of creating a work of art. Explore how to stabilize elements of art and principles of design to achieve harmony in two dimensional work. Students will learn how to master balance through composition and form exercises in drawing and painting. This class will concentrate on techniques rather than medium exploration and is designed for students who have painting and/or drawing experience.
