Beginner Gouache: Plein Air at Parsons

$92

with Taylor Grant, Sanford Community Adult Education

Calendar Sep 21, 2019 at 1 pm, runs for 1 week

A one day outdoor painting workshop that takes place at Parson's Beach in Kennebunk. We'll spend the day familiarizing ourselves with gouache, the bold cousin of watercolor. This water based, opaque medium that dries to a matte finish is well suited for painting quick studies of ever-shifting atmospheric conditions. Beginner gauche set and medium specific paper included. Bring sunscreen, bug spray, snacks, and plenty of water! We'll have a rain date if weather is not agreeable.

Beginner Soft Pastel

$36

with Tara Finlay, Sanford Community Adult Education

Calendar Oct 10, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

In this two-night gentle introduction to soft pastel, we'll work with a student grade set (that you get to take home!) to produce an impressionistic landscape using a photo reference from the instructor. You'll learn how to block in values and apply the pastels. Then in the second class, you'll learn a super-quick underpainting technique to bring richness and vibrancy to your work. We'll do an impressionist floral design using the student pastels but you will get to try out several brands of professional pastels so you can experience them before you invest in a set yourself. Materials fee: $15 payable to instructor night of first class.

More chords will be added to your tool box and you will learn how to transpose songs from one key to another. Of course, there will be many laughs along the way and you will need to practice. The pace will be geared to the proficiency level of those enrolling. At a minimum, all students are expected to know basic chord formations in the Keys of C and G and be capable of smooth chord transitions. If you love playing the ukulele and you want to enhance your knowledge of this wonderful instrument, this course is a must.
