Start by learning how to create a variety of textures using different tools then sketch out and begin a scratchboard piece of your own.

Field Sketching

Field Sketching meets once per week to explore a new and unique Central Oregon location. All locations are within an hour’s drive of downtown Bend. Each week, we will begin with exploration and discussion of the location, then watch a demo of a key landscape feature (i.e., rivers, mountains, trees, rocks, clouds). You will be able to use this technique to design your own artistic observations of the world around you. Field Sketching includes a scientific component that will help us further understand the places we visit and the living and non-living elements of these places. Supplies for field sketching and plein air painting will be included, but you are encouraged to bring your own field painting supplies should you choose to do so. For example, if you are a plein air oil painter, come along and learn about the ecology of these areas and paint along with new friends. Suitable for adults 18 and older.

Introduction to Gouache 
 

Is it watercolor, acrylic, oil….? This often-overlooked medium is a perfect complement to acrylic, oil and watercolor artists alike.

Henna

Take art to another level in our henna class! Henna tattoos are beautiful temporary tattoos that last for about two weeks, depending on how often the designated area is washed. This creamy dye is all-natural and is prepared from a plant called Lawsonia inermis, or otherwise known as the henna tree. Henna tattoos have a brownish-red hue, and the darkness of the tattoo increases the longer it stays dried on the skin. Your teacher, Hanna, will provide tubes of henna dye, stencils, and many examples of designs to look at. You will learn how to apply henna, create awesome designs, and will also have the opportunity to get tattooed by Hanna.
