NEW Choose Your Medium Painting Class with Jeanne LaRae

When: Wednesday, June 5th, 2019 (4 week session)
Time: 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Where: Central Art
Fee: $120

Choose your own painting adventure in a creative setting that's as individualized as you'd like it to be. Students will be able to choose both their medium - oils or acrylics - and the subject matter they'd like to paint.

In this class, the techniques of artists who inspire you will be demystified, and you will be encouraged, but not pushed, to try various ways of painting that are a little outside your comfort zone.

Please bring examples of your work and ideas for possible subjects for your paintings to the first class. Students are responsible for their own materials, or you may discuss with Jeanne about providing supplies for you for each class or just to start.

All levels are welcome. Pre-registration is required as space is limited. Call 541-773-1444 or visit Central Art today and pay to register.

Have you always wanted to get into drawing your own comics, but aren't sure where to start? This is the class for you! Dive in and get familiar with the foundational techniques and methods in beginning visual storytelling for comics and graphic novels.

This intensive course will include the foundational visual storytelling concepts of shot selection, camera angles, 180 degree rule, left/right orientation and page and panel layout.

Also covered will be iconic drawing, clear and communicative figure drawing, drawing in perspective and creating mood and atmosphere. There will be some time spent discussing traditional inking techniques, text, sound effects/onomatopoeia and the use of color in visual storytelling.

Lectures combined with demonstrations and discussions on historical and contemporary sequential art will allow insight into what goes into becoming a successful comic artist.

Some drawing experience is highly recommended as the pace of the class will be quick and focused.
