Karen's studio will be open on Sunday, October 5th for anyone interested in learning more about the workshops and in your home art clubs I will be leading. The History of the Pen is the focus of Karen's "Art and Nature- Inky" classes. Bring someone who is a budding young naturalist and start your own art club. Karen welcomes artists of all ages if the interest is honest. Beginners are also welcome- these classes are good for portfolio development and can include art beyond nature into fantasy and science fiction. Drawing skills will be the focus ie students interested in comic and Manga will practice the human figure, the bone and muscular functions as well as perspective and form. Please contact Karen to inquire about the possibilities. The host student will receive a %50 off discount on tuition with five students the the class.
Nature is the inspiration for these "in your home" classes. Develop your awareness of the natural world as you explore illustration techniques and the process of working on a field guide of images or a poster containing several. Areas of possible interest: Botany, Animal Biology, Human Anatomy, Weather, Space, Microbiology, Geology, etc... Students will be exposed to the history of the drawing tool while using their contemporary skills to render images with the instrument of their choice. Color will be added as images evolve. Fantastical projects that are inspired by science are welcome. Advanced drawing skills are not necessary; just your interest in developing a new awareness of the natural world. Comic artists can use this class to begin a well thought out portfolio.
