Learn drawing techniques with straight lines to hone your ability to see simply and translate from a 3D image to a 2D surface. About this event In this class, we focus on drawing with straight lines so that we can hone our ability to see simply and accurately draw the big shapes. Proportions are so crucial to getting a drawing “correct.” We need to learn to map objects out on the page first before jumping into details. Since there is a multitude of things to study to improve your control and methods of rendering, taking one thing at a time can help clarify and foster the focus. To this end, we discuss ways to see 2-dimensionally so that we can better translate the 3-D onto the 2-D surface. This helps us see more “objectively” so that we can ultimately make better decisions. With practice, we are connecting our eyes to the pencil tip and thus becoming more lean mean seeing machines. All Ages Welcome Nora Daniel has traveled the world, painting the myriad of people, places and animals she encounters. A classically trained realist, she finds inspiration in what she observes, but also infuses each work with a unique point of view. Even her pastoral scenes are marked by vibrant colors and unusual, sometimes playful, compositions. These choices imbue each image with striking depth, mystery and optimism. She is a well revered teacher who has teaches workshops provides private lessons.

We will teach students how to become better creative writers in a series of workshops that focus on storytelling and poetry. About this event This class will help aspiring writers 10 years and older improve their skills in narration and self-expression. Through the span of 8 weekly workshops, students will learn how to become a better creative writer and/or poet by infusing the art of storytelling into their writing. This is an essential skill for people who want to become better communicators or are looking for an engaging hobby. Creative writing can be a daunting field to enter, so we want to encourage those who are interested by offering technical advice and a platform to showcase their work. We will be compiling their short stories and poems into a book at the end. Ages 10+ Amber and Aurelia are high schooler and linguaphiles seeking to help others share their stories.
