If you chose mostly Drawing (pink)
Have you noticed that you have been doodling on the side of the important notes you were supposed to be taking lately? You have got line and design on the mind and you are ready for a workshop experience where you can fast-forward your drawing skills to a new level.
-You are a beginner or intermediate drawing
-You are interested in getting really really good at making the thing you are looking at come out accurately in the drawing
-You haven’t taken many (or any) classes but you’ve always enjoyed drawing on your own
-You want to know how to hold your pencil for best effect, or how to use different media like charcoal and inks
-People always tell you you’re a good artist (even if you don’t believe them)
-You want to be able to capture the beauty (or the rough sides) of life in SMA
-You want to be able to draw what you see…and have it actually look like the darn thing
There are loads of great teachers all over San Miguel, but people say Jessica’s classes are really great.
If you chose mostly Oil Painting (purple)
Colors, colors everywhere and not a drop of paint. You feel good about your drawings (most of the time anyway!) but pen and pencil isn’t cutting it anymore–you want gobs of color to express in color the world around you. Although the detail of drawing is great, you’re ready to learn about big-picture skills like composition and color theory.
-You have taken art classes before
-You may have worked in acrylic or oil before
-You know that there are different techniques to use with oils but haven’t tried more than one
-You are looking for feedback and workshopping of your work from peers and teacher guidance
