Capturing the Natural World (6 weeks)

Monday’s 10am-12pm; January 22, 29, February 5, 19, 26, March 5

Come join us at Marnée’s Studio (2353 Airport Blvd, Mobile, AL 36606) starting this January. This watercolor class is for adult beginners to intermediate students ages 16+. It is helpful if the student has a basic understanding of drawing techniques and composition, but not necessary.

The natural world has been a source of inspiration for artists over the centuries. Students will learn basic color theory and watercolor techniques using landscape works of art and Audubon collections as sources of inspiration, to better understand the connection between art and nature. Students will then use these resources to create their own works of art.

Demonstrations are given during each class meeting, as needed. The students are able to paint with the instructor and apply what they have learned to create a painting from a photographic reference.

This adult drawing class (ages 16+, beginner- intermediate) focuses on creating works of art inspired by wildlife common to the Mobile-Tensaw Delta. The Delta is one of the most ecologically diverse regions in the country. We will utilize the techniques of artists of the past to create our own animals in art from photographic references.

We’ll have fun learning about delta ecology, basic drawing skills and understanding of visual language through studio instruction. Students will review concepts such as proportion, space, perspective, tone, and composition as applied to animal portraiture. Uses drawing media such as pencil, charcoal and ink wash. It is helpful if the student has a basic understanding of drawing techniques and composition, but not necessary.

Demonstrations are given during each class meeting, as needed. The students are able to draw with the instructor and apply what they have learned to create a drawing from a still life, or photographic reference.
