Art Classes: Drawing - Watercolor

I love to teach. I want to surprise students by showing them their capabilities. I push hard with encouragement and a deep conviction that the student will blossom.

Classes often start with an exercise to help us loosen up or give a different way of perceiving a subject. I may do follow along drawing and/or watercolor demonstrations. I usually provide reference material for the day's subject or theme. We work from a wide variety of subject matter, often student driven.

Classes are flexibly structured on a pay-as-you-go basis. Classes are at my studio at Lincoln Street Center, Rockland, Maine. See directions to my studio below.

I believe that everyone has the capacity to learn to draw and paint. It is a matter of changing one's belief that one has 'no talent' and of learning to see in new ways. As we grow up we learn to see the objects in our environment by their meaning. We tend to try to depict them in symbol form rather than in the shapes as they appear to our senses. We are able to instantly recognize objects because we identify their meaning. To create the illusion of 'realistic objects' in a drawing or painting, one must go back to seeing abstract shape and form. The hardest part is learning to see. Once one can see the abstract shape the hand can follow. And often, when one thinks the hand is not following, it is because the mind doesn't want to let go of its familiar ways. Learning to draw is as much about changing habits as about learning.

Directions to Studio at Lincoln Street Center:

From Thomaston-
Park St. (Rt 1) into Rockland.
Left at Broadway (1A) (the light at the fire station). Right at Limerock,( the first light once on Broadway). Left at Lincoln Street. Continue a few blocks til you see the school (on your left). There is a sign at the first driveway. Left at that driveway to the parking lot in the rear of the school. A side door to the building is on that driveway and is practically at my studio. Park in the lot and return to that side door. Bang if its locked. My studio (#2) is in that corner, windows all round.
