Join A Summer Art Class at Iris Art in 2017!

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.
Wednesday mornings, July through August
10:00 AM to 11:30
Thursday evenings, July through August
5:30 PM to 7:00
