May Class: Inspired by Plants!

May 4
9:30 am – 2:00 pm
Joan’s Studio: 2003 Pleasant Valley Rd, Pearland TX 77581

Plants…any type or color, realistic or abstract. During this Artful Thursday, you will create 4 separate pieces of the same subject during timed sessions, similar to what we did in April’s classes. I will have a plant-inspired still life set up for you in the studio or you can use images that you bring. This promises fun and improves your skill at painting or drawing more loosely. 

If you choose to bring an image, PLEASE bring a printed copy instead of using your phone. I will not be able to print images for you during class.

You can focus on painting or drawing your images, OR both…a combo is fine too! Bring paper, watercolor paper that has been gesso-ed AND/OR canvases. Bring pencils, watercolors or acrylic paints. You could just bring all of your supplies and decide on your medium when you get to class!

What you can expect:
Artful Thursdays are multilevel classes designed to allow anyone to jump in right where you are today in a safe and inspiring class setting. You do NOT have to come with experience. You will be challenged, affirmed and encouraged to get your feet wet, make mistakes and own your personal style and ideas.

We will have a brief opening prayer, instruction on the days assignment, plenty of time to work before and after lunch, time to show any current work(s), share helpful art information or ask a question, and participate in a helpful and supportive critique. This is a safe place to be yourself and risk trying something new. The goal isn’t perfection but moving forward in art. 

Bring: Your lunch + drink, a journal, your image, paints, pencils, brushes, paper, gesso-ed water color paper and/or canvases. 

Reminder! Please do not wear scented lotions or perfume. In the studio, we are in close quarters and some individuals have severe reactions to fragrances!

Cost: $50, cash or check, due before class starts. You bring your own materials or pay $10 additionally per class to use my materials. You must let me know if you will be using my materials.
