Group Details

This group is for teen artists to work on their own individual drawing or painting projects and meets in the studio in Alto on Tuesdays from 6-7:30pm weekly. *This session will have optional challenges focusing on landscape and portrait drawing for those interested. We will work on gesture drawing for faces and figures, as well as exploring techniques for adding depth to landscapes.* Each artist will work individually at their own pace alongside their peers to grow their drawing and/or painting skills. Erin will observe artists at work, offering individualized guidance, suggestions, and feedback. Erin may also work alongside students, as this can be helpful for those who learn from demonstrations or wish to learn more about her process. There will be time during each group to share, ask questions, and participate in critique. Beginners will start by developing drawing skills using graphite, charcoal, and pastels. Erin focuses on drawing what you see, emphasizing line, shape, value, and proportion. Students who are ready for and interested in painting will use acrylics. The class fee includes all materials and storage for works-in-progress. (Advanced students may be provided a list for supplies should they wish to work at home and/or keep their own supplies.) WHAT TO BRING: Please come to the first class with reference photos printed from your own pictures, from a magazine, or otherwise with a subject that you are interested in drawing-- perhaps a human portrait, cartoon character, animal, food, floral, or landscape. Bring a water bottle and snack if you'd like, and dress in clothing that you don't mind getting dirty.
