CLASSES & OPEN STUDIO DAYS

Home > Classes

We are offering art and painting classes exclusively at Lyon Road Art’s new studio in Waunakee, Wisconsin (suburb of Madison)! I have taught many classes over the years, from fun Paint ‘N Sip ones, to serious medical illustration and watercolor classes, to volunteering art at nursing homes. However, this is the first time I’m doing it through my own studio and I couldn’t be more excited to share my expertise with the adults and children in the community! I look forward to working with you and your children.

CLASSES

All classes will be offered at 101 E. Main St., Waunakee, WI.

This class is for anyone with a love of drawing and is interested in expanding their skills by learning the fundamentals and beyond. Or if you just want to hang out with cool people while learning a new hobby, that's okay too! You will learn how to sketch, shade and render basic forms, how to execute precise technical drawings, and even touch on the basics of portrait drawing. We will be using drawing pencils, pen and charcoal.

Does your kid love painting? Love animals? Maybe both? If so, sign them up! Each week we will go through step-by-step instructions to render a different animal in watercolor. The tentative plan is to paint jellyfish, a sea turtle, a bee and an owl, but I do love taking suggestions from the class, so we may deviate from that syllabus. Either way, the kids will learn an appreciation of the medium and the joy of hanging out with other creative kids.

Have you taken my Watercolor First Timers class and are ready for the next step? Or perhaps you already have familiarity with the lovely medium and want something beyond the 101?  We'll be doing projects that are slightly more in-depth, including more dramatic still lifes and a landscape with some perspective work. Join us for a class that will bring you peace, joy and smiles, even as it challenges you.

The art of figure drawing takes special skill and consideration. Fortunately, applying certain techniques, using certain materials and practicing can improve one's skill immensely. In this class we will learn the basics of figure drawing, touch on portrait drawing, and practice with a live (NON-nude) model.

I’ve heard it said that watercolor is the most challenging medium. You know, because you can’t erase or paint over it and it’s hard to control with all that flowing. Wrong! This medium is beautiful, ethereal, exciting and, yes, it can be controlled. With just a few tricks of the trade I can teach you to be the master of it as well. This class is for beginners and beyond; anyone who has an interest in learning and developing skills in painting and watercolor techniques is welcome! 

For this class, you will need to bring your own supplies. Check out the RESOURCES page for links to recommended materials.
