Blue Goose Summer Art Classes
Main Street, Chester
530-258-2600

 

9:00 am- 4pm 


"In the Beginning There Was Line"
Taught by Gallery Artist Susan Kearns 
Class Fee: $25 (includes all tools and materials).   Class limited to 16 people.

Forever remove the "I don't know how to draw" from your lips.  This workshop teaches the inexperienced, hopeless, non-artist to see and capture what artists look for when drawing (and painting too).  Through clear, simple explanation and demonstration, you are led through a series of relaxing exercises in baby steps which reinforce in you the magic concept of drawing with line, of making your pencil dance in step with your eyes.  Experience the shift to using the "right side" of your brain, the artistic side.  Join the fun of never again being afraid to draw, and finishing the class with your own original ink line drawing enhanced with color.
