Graphite Powder Drawing

We welcome artist Gretchen Woodman who will be teaching Graphite Powder Drawing (SA 13), a medium I have longed to learn. The technique of painting with graphite powder (no medium necessary) provides ways to create soft, beautiful images with photographic accuracy (if desired). 

Bronze Casting- Organic Burn Out

Have you been holding on to a beautiful tree branch or a pet fish you have saved in the freezer for just the right moment? Green Foundry proprietors Lauren and Josh Dow present Bronze Casting – Organic Burn Out (SA 17). Your saved tresures can last forever with direct burn out bronze casting. Create an exact replica of any organic matter using a high heat mold. The mold is fired, the debris from the original object removed, and bronze is cast in its place leaving a perfect reproduction of the original piece of driftwood or lace.

Academic Art Crash Course

Alastair Dacey
is offering a new class; Academic Art Crash Course (SA 7). This is a comprehensive introduction to the rigors of academic drawing and painting. Beginning with Bargue copies and cast drawings, visual concepts and basic tools of set up will be introduced. (Painter and lithographer Charles Bargue, in collaboration with Jean-Leon Gerome, published 197 lithographs as a guide to students working from plaster casts.) Still life drawing and painting will follow with a focus on design, value unity, color seeing and mixing and a “visual order” approach. 

Want to Draw & Paint Looser & Fresher?


Your Sketchbook – The Key to Wonder (SA 10) with Bill Paarlberg is a must for those who wish to paint fresher and looser while they explore new media and techniques, use thumb nails and value studies to progress more quickly while sharpening skills. Bill is also offering Watercolor Basics for the Absolute Beginner (SA 16) for those who want a morning introduction or refresher to this luminous medium.

Working From & Beyond the Photograph

Tom Glover
introduces Working From & Beyond a Photograph (SA 4), exploring how photography effected the development of painting and learning how to use the photograph as a stepping stone to more sophisticated and complex work. Pushing Towards Abstraction (SA1) is another class taught by Tom for those interested in exploring abstraction or at least pushing towards less representational imagery.


 Drawing the Figure with Sydney Bella Sparrow (SA 9)
Working on several poses throughout the semester, students will start with a linear block-in and move forward to a finished, 3-dimensional figure with full values and form. Gesture, proportion, comparative measurement, and building volume are taught along with demos, problem-solving, and discussion. The focus will be to create figure drawings that demonstrate both anatomical accuracy and sensitivity to line work and composition.

We have a wonderful array of courses to suit the discerning pallette for a Fall of lively, artful learning. We welcome you to join us!
