Course:  FAUVES...Creating in Expressive Color

                                                                              Prerequisites:  Offered to amateurs to semi-professional
                                                                              level studio participants.  
                                                                              Overview:  This seven-session studio course is for students
                                                                              interested in color theory and its application, interpreting
                                                                              masterworks from various subject areas, and creating
                                                                              uniquely original and colorful dry medium personal projects.  
                                                                              Enlisting the Fauves (French for "wild beasts") as our
                                                                              springboard to creating our own unique works of art,
                                                                              participants will learn about this revolutionary and vibrantly
                                                                              colorful art movement of the early 20th century.  With Henri
                                                                              Matisse and Andre Derain as its leaders, the Fauves were
                                                                              fascinated by redefining space and interpreting mood
                                                                              through unique color choices and applications.  All seven
sessions will be working ones -- held in galleries at the Museum of
Fine Arts Houston, the Menil, and in the studio classroom/gallery at
Texas Art Supply Montrose (2001 Montrose Blvd.).  Fees are listed
below and do not include cost of supplies (approximately $40). All
students will be given a supply list.  Limited enrollment.

Course:  Advanced Drawing: Independent Projects (ADIP)

Prerequisites: Offered to mid-level amateurs to semi- and
professional-level participants.  
Overview:  The course is designed to help each student
understand and develop a unique personal style.  Students
bring in their own works and materials and receive instruction
on those independent projects.  For instance, if a student
wanted to begin work on a specific portrait with instruction
along the way...this is a good class for that.  Sometimes students
bring in projects that they've already started working on -- so this
course has no concrete 'beginning' or 'end'; it's for those
who have project ideas and are wanting guidance no matter
where they are time-wise in their projects.  Every student
chooses his/her own subject, technique, and medium (though
everything created in this class is 2D and created using
non-combustible materials).  Some students work on several
projects at once; others work on one the entire length of the
course.  I keep student numbers low (maximum enrollment: 12)
so that I have time to help everyone during each session.
Students enrolling in this course are at various levels...and
most have their preferences for what medium they like.
But they're all eager for exposure and instruction.

Fees are listed with each course below and do not include cost of supplies.  
Limited enrollment.  All classes are held at Texas Art Supply Montrose (2001 Montrose Blvd.).
