These 40-minute Zoom Art Lessons are free for the time being. Use the links below to join the classes. Everyone is welcome to join all of the classes.
Make sure to check the MATERIALS LIST below and get set up with Zoom before the class. I am figuring out a way to use two laptops so the reference will be displayed during the lesson. I’m thinking students can take a screen shot, so they can finish on their own if need be. I’ll keep it simple until we get used to the remote format. Don’t have to worry about class size. A zoom meeting can be up to 100 peeps! We’ve got around 16 so far.
I can’t wait to see my students. I have missed you, and look forward to seeing you on Zoom. If there’s interest, I will be offering these times each week, and we’ll get into a rhythm. – which is important in these crazy times.

Down & Dirty with Pastels
Tuesday, March 31, 4:00-4:40
Wednesday, April 1, 4:00-4:40
Thursday, April 2, 4:00-4:40
- Sketch book 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: https://www.dickblick.com/items/20016-0489/ 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. https://www.dickblick.com/items/20016-0489/
- Gum eraser
- Vine charcoal
I have a couple very used sets of student pastels I can lend out, and could make a few kits with the eraser, vine charcoal, backing board, and a few pieces of Canson paper, maybe a few darks too. If you want to get a kit, I can leave on my front porch for you to pick up. You’d just need to let me know when you’d be stopping by.
Still working on this Family Portrait. All I need to do is make the water watery and surround the fish with the glass bowl.
