Free Zoom Class Schedule

Join me for fun Zoom Art Classes! Students are welcome to join any and all of the weekly classes.

Happy holiday of rebirth! I hope everyone is healthy, thriving, and staying safe.  We had a zoom brunch with the family today, so nice to see the grandkids with their Easter baskets. Now, all we need to do is stay put and adhere to safe practices until scientists and public health officials agree that it’s safe to re-enter social space. I’m not sure how we’ll handle the annual show and auction scheduled for May 22, but will keep current with public health directives, work with Bramhall’s, and keep you updated.

I’m making masks for the whole family. This one is from a scrap of Lily Pulitzer fabric. If we have to take these safety measures we might as well have fun doing it. 😷

One thing I am really enjoying about these zoom classes is that I do a demo during the class, so I actually produce some quick paintings along the way. Enjoy these artworks from last week’s zoom classes, and scroll down for this week’s FREE ZOOM CLASS SCHEDULE & REFERENCE PICS.

MATERIALS LIST – Don’t worry if you don’t have all of the materials. Some kids are using oil pastels and colored pencil with satisfying results.

  • Sketchbook and pencil for value study
  • Canson Mi Tientes paper or some other textured tinted drawing paper. If all you’ve got is white, that’s okay too.
  • Backing board and masking tape – you can use a piece of cardboard or foam core to tape the paper to.
  • Soft pastels with hopefully some dark darks.  Dick Blick has a cheap student set here:  And if you’re willing to spend a little more, Jack Richeson pastels are a good value. The darker and more saturated you can find, the more expensive they are.
  • Gum eraser
  • Vine charcoal
