Dear Continuing or Prospective Student:

[twocol_one]

Had a good response and a wonderful time teaching the two Albany fall painting classes, Acrylics and Watercolor, and the fall drawing class in Pleasant Hill.   Thanks to all who were able to participate!  Beginning in January, I will offer two Albany classes:  Drawing with Pen, Ink & Brush and Painting with Acrylics and –  in Pleasant Hill – Basic Drawing and Beyond!

As usual, anyone who is a returning student or who recruits a student to a class gets a free gift.  Advanced students or students who have taken previous classes with me can work independently in their choice of media in any class with individual help.   Note: you do not have to be a “senior” to sign up for these classes.

If you are interested in one of these upcoming classes, please register as soon as you can since classes must meet minimum enrollment in order to be held.  Registration is  sometimes possible at the class but only if enough students have  registered before class start date.

Check back with my website periodically.  I may offer other classes in other locations or private/semi-private instruction in my studio in Walnut Creek.  Hope to see you in class and have a wonderful New Year!

City of Albany – Recreation and Community Services Department

Drawing with Pen, Ink & Brush

Open to all levels and ages.  Pen, ink & brush is an inexpensive, easy-to-use drawing media that can resemble an intricate line drawing etching or a painting in black and white.  (Working in black and white is good training for painters in learning to see and build strong values in their compositions.)  Beginning students will work in drawing with pen, ink and brush.  Techniques such as free-flowing pen and brush lines and shading with cross-hatching, stippling and wash will be taught using a variety of approaches and exercises.  (Students who have taken a class with Stephanie can work in their choice of any painting or drawing media, with instructor giving them individual critiques and lessons.)  Students will supply their own pens, ink, brushes and paper.  Instructor supplies special paper, other materials for class.   Plus learn easy, economical ways to mat & frame finished pieces!  Bring several objects to draw and whatever supplies you already have to first class where materials will be discussed and list handed out.  $4 materials fee due at first class.
