In response to Covid 19 and the need for social distancing, I am teaching live online art classes using Zoom. Each class session is six weeks long. To participate, you will need internet and a device with a working microphone and speaker.

Once you register and pay, you will receive an email with all the class information: including the Zoom invite, materials list, and anything you will need for the first class.

Watercolor 102

Thursdays, January 21 – February 25
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm (EST)
(Six Weeks)

Instructor: Claudia Selene
This class covers a fun mix of subject matter and techniques. It is also a community where you can try out and get feedback on new things, and enjoy watching your fellow art students grow and explore.

Topics for study and discussion will include:
  • Controlling washes
  • Drybrush and layering
  • Light, atmosphere and value structure
  • Composition and artistic choices

Note: This class is for students who have taken my watercolor classes before or who are familiar with the medium. Some drawing experience suggested, or you can take drawing concurrently.

Intermediate/Advanced Drawing

Mondays, January 18 – February 22
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm (EST)
(Six Weeks)

Instructor: Claudia Selene
This is an ongoing class for students who have a strong understanding of drawing fundamentals and wish to take their skills to the next level!

We will explore complex subject matter such as:
  • compositions with figures in an environment
  • still lives with transparent and/or reflective elements
  • landscapes with complex elements like waterfalls and multiple buildings
  • expressive portraiture
  • trompe l'oeil
We will also make master copies from drawings by great artists to study their composition, stylistic choices, line work and thought processes.

Each session of this class will feature different subject matter, so this is an ideal ongoing class to keep you challenged and inspired as you perfect your skills.

Sketching with Ink

Wednesdays, January 20 – February 24
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm (EST)
(Six Weeks)

Instructor: Claudia Selene
In this class we will focus on drawing with a pen, and the practice of recording your observations of the world around you. We will explore how to make an expressive composition out of the type of subjects you might encounter during a walk in the woods or while waiting for a bus or sitting down for a cup of tea.

We will practice different types of mark-making and discuss how various artists have used line thickness and density to guide the viewer’s eye and create texture, movement, and other effects.

I will also demonstrate how to add color to your ink drawings with watercolor and colored pencils.

This class is for exploring ways of using a particular medium rather than the technical aspects of drawing. If you wish to improve your basic drawing skills, please take Drawing Fundamentals concurrently.
