 TECHNIQUES with Jeannine: 
Learn studio foundations in your medium of choice, 
try a new medium or continue on a an established path. Resources are available to help students with their choices for subject matter.  Still life setups are available. 


                                                Mindful Drawings by Jeannine 

                                       Drawing is the key foundation skill for artists.                                                       




DRAWING: work with graphite, charcoal, pen, brush and ink, colored pencils and pastels.  

Drawing is the foundation skill for any artist. Many students say they need to practice and understand how drawing works.  
We work from master drawings and still life settings to train the eye to see all the nuances of line, shape, the effects of lighting, shading, and texture and the discerning elements of design and composition.   
PAINTING: work with any water base paints or oils.  
Students will work from their own photos, drawings, and life expe
riences to create their own compositions. 

Guidance and support is always available for color choices and mixing, painting techniques, critical considerations and adjustments with any ongoing work, demonstrations and information about 
painting materials.
