Art Lesson with Janet Schwartz- Release Your Inner Artist
Thursday April 20, 2017
"Simple Techniques to Release Your Inner Artist" is a hands-on workshop designed to help adults overcome the stumbling block of perception and focus on seeing what is really there.Participants learn to simplify what is seen to capture the essence of the subject. Working with pastels, Janet Schwartz guides participants to see their subject in darks, lights and mid-tones rather than focusing on the individual’s perception of what objects should look like and overcomplicating their work.Through a series of images that are more and more in-focus, each participant will create what initially looks like an abstraction but gradually evolves into something more familar.
Free and open to the public.
