Take an online class with me this winter! Classes are for adults and high school students. Scholarships are available for those who are eligible.
Painting Towards Climate Justice
This class meets at the intersection of art and environmentalism. We will learn about various ways that contemporary artists address the environment, ecological crisis, and climate justice in their work, and we will incorporate these broader themes and strategies as inspiration for our own art. Topics include future visioning, industrial critique, our relationship with the earth, and working with sustainable materials. The class is based on cultivating 2D work; however artists who are proficient in any medium may join.
Monday Jan 25, 2021 – Mar 22, 2021 (no class Feb 15)
12-2 p.m. PST
Collage Into Painting
Spark your creativity by learning how to make a collage and using it as a starting point for an abstract painting. As a hands-on workshop, we will spend the majority of time making artwork and sharing our progress with the group. We will also look at work by collage artists and abstract painters for inspiration, discuss elements of design, and explore color mixing in paint. The workshop is open to painters and mixed media artists of all levels of experience.

Drawing with Wet Media 1
The beauty of drawings made with wet media can be found in the idiosyncratic marks and unexpected moments that come out of using a medium that doesn’t always want to be controlled. Join us to explore and play as we incorporate a variety of tools and media into our practice. The class will cover pen, ink, marker, and water soluble crayon. Open to students who have taken Drawing Fundamentals or who have a skill set in drawing line, volume and value.
