ONLINE CLASS: THE BEAUTY OF COMPOSITION

Composition is not a set of rules we must follow, but an elegant “language” in which to communicate. Composition is my “best friend” that sits beside me through all my work. Rather than restrict freedom, compositional principles can give you more confidence, making for freer, stronger work.

ONLINE CLASS: TRANSLATING LANDSCAPE

The landscape is a gentle way of exploring the elements that are integral to making meaningful work: line, value, color, shape, edges, composition. In this 6-lesson class, we will use our study of landscape to work at finding our unique mark, learning and reinforcing design concepts, drawing with intent, and simplifying.

This class is available online.

(ABOUT) SUMMER SESSION CLASSES 2019

I have found in the past , Summer Session is difficult for folk to commit to weeks of consecutive classes. I will be in Seattle most of the Summer. If you have a desire to work with me directly in private classes, wonderful. Do so. Also, if there is a group of you, up to six, fits in my studio just right, we can arrange a weekend or weekday session. Also, let me know what may interest you for future classes, too.

ps: Studio is tidy.

UNLEASHING COLOR WITH MARIE THIBEAULT

In this exciting course, the student will explore color concepts and expression in a guided process of collage and painted studies. Course structure will be contextualized within the history of painting, and each student will gain an understanding of how color use can enhance and strengthen their own creative work. This class is designed for those who have some painting experience although it is open to anyone interested in exploring the subject. Gouache and collage materials will be used in combination on paper.
