OPEN STUDIO with John A. Hancock

Late Fall Session

Wednesdays from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
9 weeks offered:  October 17 – December 12, 2018

You love to draw or paint but need a large, bright, and sunny space to work?  Maybe an easel or large table?  Maybe you need a little encouragement from an experienced artist! Well, here you go, John A. Hancock, an artist with over thirty years helping adult artists pursue their passion for drawing, painting, and design, will be working on his paintings and drawings every Wednesday.  You are invited to work in the studio too. Bring your own projects, work at your own pace, and get as much (or as little) help and advice as you want. Bring a friend or meet someone new who also loves to draw or paint.

Let’s explore several sketching mediums in this short five week class. We will begin by working in the studio but, whenever weather permits, we will work mostly outside (“en-plein-air”) to capture the beauty of our fall landscape. After starting with traditional pencil and ink sketches, you will be able to choose what other material you wish to explore for the addition of a wider or more subtle value range, greater texture, and/or color. Some choices you might consider: watercolor or gouache, watercolor pencils or color pencils, dry pastels, oil pastel, or watercolor crayons … I will demo most of these but you pick the one(s) you already love or want to explore in some depth!  For beginners to advanced students who have at least a little experience with drawing or painting.
