You Can Draw! Drawing for people who can "only draw stick figures" 

May Hunter Scarmazzi will be teaching a beginners drawing class aimed at changing your perception about your ability to draw! If you've always wished you could draw but "can't even draw a straight line", this is the class for you. Through a series of exercises students will discover that they can draw, and will learn how to use a sketchbook so that they can continue their drawing adventures for a life time with visual journaling.  

Mondays 6-8 PM
June 8th-29th 
Tuition: $100 non-member, $90 members. 

Beginners Watercolor

Keith Whitelock will be teaching a watercolor class for the serious beginner to intermediate watercolorist. His class will go over materials and techniques to help you learn to express yourself with this beautiful, seemingly simple but hard to master medium. 

Wednesdays 5:30-7:30
July 8th-29th 
Tuition: $100 non-member, $90 members.
