Artists in Bloom

This class is for anyone who loves drawing and painting. Even if you haven't painted in a while, here is your creative outlet! You can improve on your drawing skills and explore various techniques and media. Each person has the opportunity to grow and develop their skills and creativity at their own pace.  We supply a variety of media: Water-based paints (Acrylic, Watercolor, and Tempera), Vine Charcoal, Oil and Chalk Pastels, Graphite, Color Pencil, Water-color Pencil, and Ink.  No matter your skill level, this is the place to explore artistic concepts such as shading, proportion, composition and color mixing.  Adult students pursue their individual artistic interests and enjoy the company of like minded artists.

For questions about supplies, email "Miss Jo" Rancel, or call her at 703-501-3489.
