New Adult Art Class in June Deadline to Sign Up

New Adult Art Classes in June Coming to Parkland Community College

I did this class for College for Kids last year and it was a big hit.  So much that the program manager for Community Education at Parkland wanted to adapt this to a new adult art class.

The great thing about pocket sketch is with a small drawing pad and a pencil you are ready to record any inspiration, at any time during your day.  But pocket sketching is more than just drawing.  Using some simple techniques I will be helping you to quickly record images and words that can be used to trigger memories.  Memories and thoughts that can be used to create images in your studio.

Explore and document the world around you with the technique known as pocket sketching. This quick-draw method is a visual journal for artists. Armed with a sketch pad and portable supplies, artist and instructor Jackie TIce will show you how to make a personal art journal that captures both mood and character. No experience necessary, just a desire to draw.

Painting Outside
New Art Classes

I would like to announce new art classes at Parkland College.  Painting outside can be fun but challenging.  You have to carry your art supplies and then a seat, sometimes a umbrella to keep the sun of off you while you work.  Don’t forget your bug spray!  Trying to juggle all these things can be a challenge, especially if you have to hike to a distance.

Join us at a new art class as we create Plein Air packs to get our supplies were we want to be and make art with us all over the Parkland campus.  Bring what ever art medium you prefer and lets get out and make images.

Class runs from July 31 until August 28.  Class times are from 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Intermediate Acrylic Painting

Intermediate Acrylic Painting at Gaslight Art Colony

This intermediate acrylic painting class explores the joy and freedom of abstraction.  This class focuses on abstract expressionism. Even if you are a representational painter, abstraction allows a great study of paint handling, color theory, and composition.  Students will bring in imagery that has been printed in black and white.  From this we will fearlessly create work full of color and surface texture.  Whether you are a beginner or an advanced painter, this class will provide an artistic outlet.

“There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.” Pablo Picasso
