Watercolor Bliss in the Greenhouse


Enjoy a short, sweet class (SA 10, 4 Weeks beginning January 17) with watercolorist
Pat Hardy in the Wentworth Greenhouses. A perfect escape from Winter dreariness, just walking into the greenhouse on a blustery winter’s day will lighten your spirits. And watercolor is the perfect medium to capture sun and plants. Pat is the perfect host in a quest to capture the fleeting beauty of nature in the luminous art medium of watercolor.


Watercolor & Drawing


Russel Whitten’s Watercolor & Drawing (SA 5) class focuses on drawing and composition before embracing the magic of the elusive and luminous medium of watercolor. Russel’s personal watercolor work just gets better and better and he is well able to communicate his excitement and expertise to a diverse group of students.


Sanctuary Arts is pleased to add master jeweler and metalsmith Rob Peacock to our roster of stellar instructors. His Hollow Form Construction (SA 18) class is a must for folks who want to learn how to create 3 dimensional symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes, as well as techniques involving surface embellishment.

No Art Experience Necessary!

Sanctuary Arts welcomes instructor Bruce Iverson, who offers Meditations in Ink; Introduction to Asian Brush Painting (SA 4). An artist who has specialized in Asian Brush Painting (Sumi-e in Japan) since 1072, Bruce has traveled to China to gain a better understanding of the context of brush painting. His work is grounded in the 3000 year old tradition in which the tools, techniques, and philosophy of this Asian art form have had a lifelong resonance. To create his works, he uses very simple, yet elegant tools called the “Four Treasures”… hand ground sumi ink, bamboo brushes, a carved inkstone and handmade rice papers.


Beuatiful Drawing is its Own Reward


Drawing is a great way to train your eye as you attempt to capture and interpret visual information. Beautiful drawing is it’s own reward as well as an essential prerequisite for painting in any medium or for sketching ideas for 3 dimensional form. Carol Ann Morley is our drawing specialist. She offers Building Drawing Skills (SA 2) for students who wish to explore the fundamentals of representational drawing in a relaxed, non-judgmental atmosphere. A well-known botanical illustrator, Carol also offers Botanical Drawing (SA 11) and Drawing Spring Flowers (SA 12).  Carol has the ability to reach each student at their own level and work with them to achieve stellar results. A beautiful camaraderie develops in her classes as students endeavor to express themselves. 

Drawing the Figure & Classical Still Life Techniques

Figure and Still Life painter Sydney Bella Sparrow offers Drawing the Figure (SA 7). Sydney has developed a classroom curriculum that teaches students step-by-step the rigors of figure drawing. This difficult subject is broken down into easy to assimilate methods that, beginning with linear block-ins, build to create full values and form. Sydney’s Classical Still Life Techniques (SA 6) also begins with the process of creating line drawings, which are then transferred to painting surfaces where monochromatic underpaintings are completed before a full range of color is mixed and applied. Sydney is a great demonstrator and teacher of color mixing!
