Lunch & Learn with Pat Brady  March 10, 2020, 1-3 pm, Jewelry Art Class

Pat Brady

At this Lunch N’ Learn we will be using costume jewelry pieces to make works of art on fabric attached to a canvas or board.  Sample ideas will be available but you are encouraged to use your imagination.  One fun piece is to make a Christmas Tree arrangement or a group of flowers.

Items to bring if you can:

8 x 10 canvas or smaller (we will also have a few of these available)

Fabric to cover the canvas, sturdy enough to hold the jewelry pieces (we will have fabric available)

Pliers for removing pins, etc.

Glue gun (if you have one)

Old pieces of costume jewelry such as pins, pearls/necklaces, earrings, etc.  (A lot of broaches will be available) Also if you like to work with a pattern, print a simple one from the internet.

Learn to Draw What You See

Mondays 9:30 to 11:00 Beginning Sept 29, ending Dec 15

Beginning to Intermediate

This 12 week course will take you through the process of how to block out the human figure so that proportions, scale and perspective are maintained. The course will begin with the discussions on drawing contours and shape without diving too deeply into the muscular definitions that develop the forms. Though this is not an advanced figure drawing class, an elementary understanding of contour drawing, drawing relationships and perspective are essential prerequisites for this class.

The drawing materials you will need for the drawing class are: Bring 2b, 4b, 6b and 2h pencils; Bienfang or strathmore medium tooth drawing paper 11×14 pad; kneaded eraser/magic rub eraser and a oversized clip board to attach paper to. We will also be adding charcoal black, white and sienna to this list for this session.
