z Art Classes – Fall 2017





Dear Continuing or Prospective Student:


Thanks to all who were able to participate in the Summer Albany Flower Drawing & Painting Class.  Beginning on September 26, 2017, I will offer my last 7 week Albany watercolor class:  Watercolor at noon. This is a watercolor class open to those of all levels of skill and experience.   A detailed course description of this class & dates & times are below.  This will be the last time I teach a 7 week class or any class in Albany in the foreseeable future due to my notecard business growing and also due to my husband and I wanting to be free to begin travelling more.  I have really enjoyed teaching in Albany and meeting the many students I have had through the years!  I plan to set up some very small private lessons/classes in my studio in Walnut Creek in the future.  This last Albany Watercolor class has met the minimum and will be taught.  Currently there is room for you to enroll.

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.  Note: you do not have to be a “senior” to sign up for these classes.

If you are interested this upcoming class, please register as soon as you can in person or online so I know how many to expect.  Registration is possible at the class but come very early if you want to do that.  Online registration is now open with the City – see link below.

Email me if you have any interest in private/semi-private instruction in my studio in Walnut Creek.  Check back with my website periodically.  I will list it when I begin the studio lessons in Walnut Creek.  Probably not until the New Year.    Hope to see you in class this Fall and hope you are had a wonderful Summer!

Listed below is the course description, schedule and registration information for this last Watercolor class I am scheduled to teach through the City of Albany – Recreation and Community Services Department.

Open to all levels/ages.  Beginning students will work in watercolor, learning basics of watercolor painting, including mixing and applying washes, use of color, value, line, shape, form, light, rhythm, and texture.  Beginning students are shown specific exercises to learn about color mixing & paint handling after which they can choose to paint abstracts, landscapes, botanical studies, still-lifes or other subjects of their choosing.
Advanced students or those who have taken a class with Stephanie can work in their choice of any drawing/painting media, beginning at first class with instructor working with them individually and providing guidance and ideas for development of their work.   Basic drawing and composition as it relates to creating a painting will be taught to all including making & using a viewfinder and making working sketches in charcoal.  Learn easy economical ways to mat and frame finished pieces.  Students are encouraged to create visual richness by developing the thought and feeling in their work.
Students should bring any supplies they already have to first class where materials will be discussed & list handed out.  Students supply their own paint, brushes & paper.  Many other materials (flowers, newsprint, charcoal, lift-off fluid, graphite transfer tissue, gouache & more) will be provided by the in-class materials fee of $4 payable to instructor. The instructor has worked for over 40 years observing and painting and drawing from nature and some of this work can be seen on her website:            StephanieScottArtist.com and on Etsy.com at www.etsy.com/shop/StephanieScottArtist
