Summer Art Classes 2017!

Join A Summer Art Class at Iris Art!
Drawing is a fundamental life skill, like reading and writing, that everyone should learn.
If you can write your name, you can draw.
In drawing class, you will discover that good drawings come from learning how to
 trust what you actually SEE, versus what you THINK you are seeing.
In drawing class, we will study line, shape and value – the basic elements of a good drawing –
 and learn the absolute MAGIC that is creating the illusion of three dimensions on a flat piece of paper!
In watercolor class, we will explore the medium, and learn many brushwork techniques.
  We will also learn about painting light and shadow, and good composition basics.

Framing Tips

Iris Art & Framing uses only archival material and methods to frame your needlework!  Never glue, never tape, and a hundred years from today, you could take it apart and see what you stitched up close and personal, with no damage from sun or substance EVER.  Gwen is holding a floral work by Francie Sawyer, and Katie has a landscape by Norma Campbell.  Both artists invested many, many hours sewing, and chose beautiful mats and frames to enhance their lovely pieces.

Jessye Abell Painting Mural

Jessye Abell (Cathie Abell-Nelson’s daughter) is shown here painting a watermen-themed mural on a  pump station in Poquoson as part of the Great American Clean-up and keep Poquoson Beautiful campaign.  Cathie (owner of Iris Art & Framing) helped sketch the image for the mural.

Jessye is local mural and tatoo artist who grew up in Poquoson.  She has her own studio and has been doing mural painting for 11 years.  She stretches all of her murals directly onto the surface – no tracing.  “There’s no tracing of anything – that would be like cheating.  It’s all clip art of the brain.” 

Jessye and Cathie both did their part for the Keep Poquoson Beautiful Campaign by contributing some fun art work.
