Two great art courses I am Teaching at the Delaplaine Art Center

Beat the heat and take an art course from me, or two! The upcoming courses I am teaching this summer are: Drawing into Calm, and Continuing Landscapes. Have you ever wanted to learn what types of art media are compatible, or do you have a passion for art history? We will explore both of these topics in my mixed media course, Drawing into Calm. Drawing from the works of Monet, Paul Klee, Gustave Klimt, and many other artists, we will create mixed media art and explore a variety of drawing and painting media, such as watercolor, collage, and acrylic painting. Classes begin on June 22nd at the Delaplaine Art Center in Frederick, MD. To learn more, please visit

And last but not least, I will be teaching a course on how to draw the landscape in pastel, with a focus on depicting a variety of landscapes at different times of the year, including beach scenes and mountain landscapes. I will teach you how color and value can be used to depict different times of the year. In addition, specific lessons will include art demonstrations that teach you how to combine watercolor and pastel to make stunning garden landscapes!
