Prerequisites: Offered to mid-level amateurs, semi- and
professional-level participants, former, and current students.
Overview:  This single-session morning class exposes participants
to the plein air (outdoor) 'studio' and the magic of working in sunlit
spaces.  Each student is able to select his/her own subject within
Hermann Park's tranquil Japanese Garden.  I will facilitate -- meeting
with each artist for discussions ranging from subject/narrative,
technique, application, and best practices. Come join us for a morning
of creating in your preferred medium -- whether colored pencil, pastel,
graphite, or watercolor.
Supply lists, maps, and parking instructions will be e-mailed along with
session confirmations.  But I have enough camp stools for all
participants.

PRIVATE STUDIO ART COURSES

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.  Enrollment is limited 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.).

Course:  FAUVES !

Prerequisites:  Offered to mid-level amateurs to
semi-professional level studio participants.  
Overview:  This seven-session evening studio course is for
students interested in color theory and its application,
interpreting from various subject areas, and creating
uniquely original and colorful dry medium (Prismacolor or
pastel) 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.  The Fauves were fascinated by
redefining space and interpreting mood through unique
color choices and applications -- invaluable lessons for
studio artists.   

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

Great American Art Collectors:  Eccentric Lives, Eminent Collections...

1. Isabella Stewart Gardner
2. Henry Clay Frick
3. Henry Huntington
4. Solomon Guggenheim
5. Albert Barnes

There are many tangents and idiosyncratic sub-texts in the stories
of these great American art collectors and their obsessions.  But,
as a group, they all had a grand vision of art, a burning fever to
amass, protect, and bequeath prized collections to posterity, and
the financial means with which to pull it off.  Although each
collector would enjoy great wealth derived from 19-20c. American
industrial expansionism (for instance, linen/iron for Gardner,
railroads for Frick, real estate for Huntington, gold mines for
Guggenheim, and Argyrol for Barnes), some would inherit most of
their wealth (Gardner, for example), some made their own fortunes
(Frick and Barnes), and two in particular (Huntington and
Guggenheim) would do both.  And each of our five collectors
would build an eponymous museum in which to house their very
personal and carefully accumulated objects.   This is the story of
art, great wealth, obsession, and legacy.

Course Details, Two Sections:

Section Dates: Five Tuesdays, October 6 - November 3
2-3:30 p.m.
Section Dates: Five Tuesdays, October 6 - November 3
