Drawing Plants and Flowers in Colored Pencil


March 18th, March 25th

April 1st, April 8th

10:00 AM - 12:00 Noon

Cost: $70 (minimum 4 students)

Students will be introduced to techniques for creating varying styles of representational colored pencil drawings from a range of plants and flowers.  Students are encouraged to bring in plants and flowers that they are interested in drawing, and new setups will be created each class.  Students will combine blending and hatching in their rendering, and will also experiment with indenting and manipulating their paper to create textures. Composition and negative space will be emphasized in this class, and students will be encouraged to complete preparatory thumbnail drawings before beginning their colored pencil drawings.

Returning students will be encouraged to experiment with achieving varied effects using Gouache, including painting over background objects with watered down, transparent gouache. For returning students, achieving different levels of finish within drawings featuring multiple objects will also be emphasized, along with introducing selective pen and ink.

The Art of Drawing Hands


April 15th, April 22nd

10:00 AM - 12:00 Noon

Cost:  $40

In this class, students will be introduced to a formula for creating proportional, representational hands.  In the first class, students will learn to draw hands by starting with establishing the palm, then drawing fingers as bones and joints before building cylinders around them.  The second class will focus on effectively rendering details such as knuckles, fingernails, and veins.  Hands are a great challenge, but becoming confident in drawing them is very empowering for artists!

10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon

Cost:  $70

In this class students will be introduced to formulas and methods for drawing subject matter that is often times shied away from due to its complicated nature.  Subject matter that will be tackled in this class will include fabric, vases (ellipses), glass objects, and metal objects.  Each class will begin with a lecture and example drawing, explaining how to approach these materials.  Students will be encouraged to practice outside of class, and sharing and critiquing work will be emphasized even more than usual in this class, as different techniques and solutions will invariably be discovered by students during their practice drawings.

Cost: $88 (materials included!)

Calligraphy with Brush Markers!

In the class you will learn a traditional calligraphic letterform called Italic and will use these letterforms to create fun words to be used in your journal, scrapbooks, envelopes, on canvas and anywhere else your imagination and creativity takes you.  It is fun for all ages 12 to 112 and is a very fun way to doodle. Doodling is good! And if you are a lefty---no problem! Lefties can write with these wonderful brush markers and do just as well as right-handers. This class is also a great starting point to transition into learning calligraphy letterforms with the traditional tools of dip pens and ink.  Have fun, learn the letterforms then make them your own and create wonderful words with bright colors---but be careful… it is highly addictive! (but that’s a good thing!)

Ed Hall

Figure Drawing Workshop

- New Class Schedule! -

3 Saturdays in June

June 7th, 14th, and 21st

10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Cost: $225  (not including materials)

Explore new ways of looking at figure drawing in this comprehensive and challenging workshop.  We will explore many facets of figurative representation including mass, weight and form as they relate to the underlying skeleton.  Structure and proportion will also be considered, using quick gestures to try to instill an instinctual knowledge about the natural form. The instructor will give demonstrations and take participants though a concentrated study of special relationships, utilizing long pose studies to examine negative space, the picture plain, and composition.  Finally, we will look at rethinking the figure, through creative and experimental processes. Ed Hall has been teaching and specializing in figure drawing for the past 30 years.  He holds an MFA in painting and a BD in Graphic Design from the University of Florida.  His drawings have been featured in both national and international exhibitions, and his award-winning figure drawing from the Figures of the New Millennium show is held in the permanent collection of The St. Augustine Art Association.
