    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:  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.  And sometimes my advanced 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.).
