Joan of Art Classes – 2018-2019
All artists are welcome! If you are a beginner, seasoned or somewhere in-between, there is a class for you. It’s a safe place to stretch your creativity and invest your time. I am offering 2 types of classes. I strongly encourage you to commit to at least one class a month from Sept – May.
ArtFul classes are $50 – I teach and give individual instruction throughout the day with a friendly but helpful critique at the end of each class. Bring your own lunch.
Connect, Paint & Critique $35 – Working together in the studio is inspiring and motivating. These classes are designed to allow you time, space and accountability to paint. Bring something to start or an incomplete painting. Bring your own inspiration/idea and the day is yours. I promise you’ll have fun and learn from one another.
Bring your own lunch.

ArtFul Class Descriptions:
THE SKY IS THE LIMIT September 6, Thursday.
Painting a landscape with sky is the goal. Bring your paints, canvas & a landscape image that inspires you. The demo will be in oils. You are welcome to use any medium. Suggested size 11X14” or there about. Bring your own lunch.
OUTSIDE THE BOX – October 3, Wednesday (NOT a Thursday)
Your creativity and imagination will have the opportunity to go wild! You will be gifted with a crafted, handmade box especially prepared with contents to inspire. The box is yours to keep! Bring your normal materials but the outcome will probably be 3D though it can be 2D! It’s all up to you. I will have a drill, glue gun, carving tools, nails, hammers & scissors for starters! Bring your lunch.
FRUIT OR FLOWERS & COLOR! – November 1, Thursday
It’s a stretch to paint something familiar with style and interest from real life. I will be using oils but you may select your preferred medium. Bring 3 smaller canvases. Suggested size is 8×8” approximately. We will draw thumbnails and do some basic drawing. I will have optional tools for those who wish to try mark making. Bring your lunch.
WINTER THEME – December 6, Thursday
As we know snow is white but it’s not white in paintings. Just like shadows aren’t grey! Bring a printed, winter themed image with light lights and dark shadows. Bring a canvas, paints and let’s let it snow in colors! Coffee, hot tea or hot chocolate will be available all day! Bring your lunch.
JUST KEEP PAINTING – January 10, Thursday. (2nd Thursday)
Lower price, $35.00 – Due to the Christmas holidays – my desire is to keep you painting. Artists can find it difficult to start afresh in the new year! Just show up and paint. I will be available to those who’d like help. Bring your own image(s) or look through my Southwest Art magazines for inspiration. Any art form grows as you practice and apply your prior knowledge. Bring your lunch.
FUN WITH FUSED GLASS – February 6, Wednesday (not Thursday) -9:45-12:00
Meet at a studio in League City. You will have a hands on experience in how to create a 6”x 6” fused glass piece. Studio address: 900 Highway 3 North, League City, TX 77573
You must sign up and pay me by January 21, 2018.
Cost: $50.00 payable to Joan Moody

SPRING FLORAL & LUNCH – March 9, Saturday – 10:00-1:00
Diane Peter will instruct you as you create a table floral arrangement to take home. Joan will serve a homemade meal as we gather around the table.
Class is limited to 8-12. $65 includes lunch and all materials but bring a pair of shears.
Note: Centerpiece will be similar but not match this one pictured.
Details will be forthcoming on how to select a drone image of a place you’ve seen or dream of seeing. We will discuss and practice the use of values of colors, neutrals and design. For starters do a search of “aerial landscape artists”…these are 2 examples!
