Art School 101 – The Fundamentals

Posted by on Jun 29, 2016 in Art School 101 - The Fundamentals | Comments Off on Art School 101 – The Fundamentals

For those of you who remember me teaching Art School 101 in the Bay Area, it’s back! This time it’s going to be online. I have teamed up with award-winning filmmaker, RJ McMahatton of Inventive Productions.com to create this course.

Art School 101 – The Fundamentals will include drawing, composition and color theory. It is for people who could only dream of going to art school. It is also for those who want to brush up on their skills. You will be able to tackle each lesson at your own pace and in the privacy of your own home. What’s even cooler? It’s going to be affordable!

Please subscribe to this blog if you’d like to keep informed on this exciting new online course that will be available soon!

Cheers. Mary

What an unusual sign. I’ve never had a chance to sit in this bookstore/coffee shop long enough to sketch this until today. Of course, I had to include that sign. Makes me smile every time I see it.

This is the inside of Dudley’s, a locally owned bookstore on Minnesota Ave in Bend. Next time I’ll have to sketch some of the shelves of books that go from floor to ceiling. It’s was a great place to hang out on a rare rainy day here.

Thanks RJ McHatton for planning this!
