Ongoing Adult and Childrens Classes

NEW!! Adult Drawing I and II

2 hours, 3 week sessions

By many requests we now are offering 2 Adult Drawing workshops in succession. Adult Drawing I covers the basics of line drawing as well as shading or "rendering" and encourages the artists way of seeing. Adult Drawing II expounds on these foundations and also includes the development of textures and styles. Sign up for the one you feel most comfortable with or try both 3 week sessions for a discount. See the Class Schedule page for more details.

Budding Beginners 

(ages 4 1/2 –5) 1 hour 

An introduction to representational drawing created for the attention span and motor coordination of the 4 & 5 year olds. In these art programs for children, children master the ability to recognize and combine the elements of shape in drawing animals, characters, still life and more.

Art Exploration

(ages 6-8) 1 hour
A representational drawing class set in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. It begins with learning the basics and easily moves on to intermediate projects. Students will draw from 3 dimensional objects, photographs, illustrations and their imaginations.

Mixed Media 

(9-adult) 1 1/2 hours
An introduction to a wide variety of drawing styles and media. Projects explore plants and animals, architectural structures, perspective, and proportion. Students are encouraged to develop their own personal style. Media: Markers, colored pencils, graphite, watercolors, conte and pastels.

Home-School classes

This class is for you! Receive all the above, but choose an earlier hour for your convenience. Children will also learn about artists in history and use their work for inspiration.

Adult Watercolor 

3 hours

Organized at the Morgan Hill CRC Senior center, this in depth class encourages patient development of works of art to be proud of. We explore the details of our tools and our subjects and learn about the special way pigment interacts with water allowing images to flow from the mind onto the page.

Upcoming Events

Art Classes and Wine Glasses

Poppies blooming in spring, they give an impression that touches the artistic place in many of us. These spring landscapes have been the subject of artists stretching back to the 17th century. For our next Art Classes and Wine Glasses we will be reinterpreting my favorite impressionist, Monet’s, Poppy Field in Argenteuil. Come with us to that French countryside, and try to imagine what Monet would have seen, or reinterpret his masterpiece to reflect our own California hillsides. The freedom to create is yours.

Perfect for a girls night out, date night, small party, or to give as a gift; attendants bring their favorite bottle of wine and a few good friends to create their own masterpieces in a friendly, casual learning atmosphere!
All materials are provided, including prepared, 16x20 canvas, paints, brushes, glasses, and hors d'oeuvres! Just bring your own beverages and your creative spirit!
Dont have any painting experience? All classes are step by step with plenty of one on one instruction. At the end of the e you will have your very own, take home, acrylic masterpiece!
We look forward to a relaxing time together!
