Art Classes Fall 2015, Winter-Spring 2016

Take time for yourself. Take an art class.

I will be teaching 3 classes at The Atelier: Gestural Figure Study, Illustration, and Portrait.  The Atelier Studio Program of Fine Art is a friendly little traditional art school located in Northeast Minneapolis, MN (a bit on the outskirts of Dinky Town). The school is on the second floor of a red brick warehouse on the corner of Stinson Blvd. and East Hennepin Ave. Off-street parking is available. Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding the classes.

Gestural Figure Study

Gain a better understanding of gesture of the figure. This class will mesh The Atelier and Studio Arts figure study methods. Students will explore what gesture is and ways to capture it through quick poses, progressively longer poses, and experimentation. A materials list will be supplied upon registration. Beginners welcome.

Fall class starts TUESDAY Sept. 15, 4:15 - 6:45 PM, $250, 15 weeks.

(Gesture will be offered in the Fall and Summer. It will not be offered in the Winter session. Instead look for Costumed Figure Drawing and Painting for the Winter Tuesday afternoon  class spot).

Illustration ClassIllustration

Stretch your imagination! During this class, students will develop imaginative pieces based upon a story or individual ideas. We will move from idea generation to preparatory work and on to final art. Emphasis will be placed on composition, and storytelling. Students may choose to work in the medium with which they are comfortable. Christine has experience to support watercolor, colored pencil, pen and ink, or oil paint.

Fall class Starts Thursday Sept. 17, 7:00 - 9:30 PM, $230, 15 weeks.
Winter class starts Thursday Jan. 28, 7:00 - 9:30 PM, $230, 15 weeks.
