Class Experience

My goal is for artists to have fun creating colorful artwork using an art medium they may not have tried and to continue to experiment on their own.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA and have enjoyed working with vibrant colors through markers, paints, and pastels. My personal style is more abstract, graphic, and even impressionistic and this is reflected in my own artwork over the years. I worked with young learners for several years when I was in charge of a volunteer- lead art program that focused on art elements and the art masters. We did many different types of projects and used different media and techniques each month. Sharing these colorful and simple ideas with young artists is exciting and I often learn from them as well as they share their ideas and express themselves in new ways.
There’s no specific homework, but artists may want to try other designs and blend more colors for new compositions.
Artists will need: - Oil pastels in a variety of colors (These are NOT powdery and WILL say “oil” on the package; please be specific in checking what you buy, thank you!) - Mixed media or art paper
Throughout the class, learners will be encouraged to share their work to assess their progress and understanding. We will engage in respectful and relaxed conversation and they are always encouraged to ask questions as needed.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
