Introduction to Figure Drawing

Thursdays September 19, 26, October 3, 10, and 17 from 6:00-8:00PM.

Instructor: Caroline Poehler

Figure drawing is one of the oldest and most valuable artistic traditions. In this course, you will be working with a nude model, which is an invaluable asset to aspiring and established artists alike. Drawing a model from observation develops and broadens one’s perceptual drawing skills. Through this experience students will further their understanding of the proportional relationships and rhythms of the body and natural forms. This course will introduce you to various materials, techniques, and approaches to drawing the human form including gesture drawing, contour, outline, and tonal modeling. Frequent individual critiques and guidance will help students personalize their creative thinking and expression.

*All levels of drawing experience are welcome.

*This course may also be purchased per class for artists and others looking for model access and a drawing group rather than instruction/direction.

800px-Preparing_a_Woodcut_Design.jpg

Exploring Printmaking

Tuesdays October 1, 8, 15, & 22 from 6:00-8:00PM.

Instructor: Rachel Loyacano Williams

In this Intro to Printmaking course, you will be exploring mono-printing (yields one unique print) and Linoleum Block printing (allows you to create multiple prints from a single carved block). Both methods are easy, fun, and allow for infinite creative possibilities! In this class you will be developing images with color, texture, and pattern through processes such as carving, stenciling, stamping, and drawing. At the end of this class, you will have a stack of beautiful prints to take home or share with friends. 


What is printmaking?

gelli print.jpg

Printmaking is an artistic process based on the principle of transferring images from a matrix or template onto another surface, most often paper or fabric. A matrix can be made of wood, metal, linoleum or other various materials. The design is created on the matrix by working its flat surface with either tools or chemicals. The matrix is then inked in order to transfer it onto the desired surface.

Instructor: Rachel Pace

During this four-week plein air urban sketching class, instructor Rachael Pace will teach the basics of watercolor, as well as a specific style and way to use the painting medium. The class will take some time to stroll around the Art House in Downtown Covington to paint from observation, and learn a bit about perspective and creating a composition. Students will learn the practice of getting an idea down on paper quickly, all while facing the little challenges that may arise when painting from life and in the outdoors (such as a bug flying into your paint or pedestrians trying to see just what you are doing!).

By the end of the session, you will have the beginnings of a fantastic sketchbook, which will include some of the architecture and nature of our beloved St. Tammany Art House and Historic Downtown Covington.

Basic Acrylic Painting

Instructor: Rob Fairburn

Thursdays August 15, 22, 29, & September 5 from 6-8 pm


Acrylic Painting through a print-maker's eyes.

Over this 4 week course, students will explore value, color theory, the importance of experimenting, and methods of acrylic painting through an emphasis on process.


Week 1. Process is everything. 

“There is no cheating in art. It’s all method.”
—A Very Wise Man (Rob Fairburn)

Today we will talk about sculpting shape with value, and the importance of an under painting as a roadmap. We will make a blue and white value painting of a still life. 

Week 2. Value adds value. Color adds flavor.

If a good value painting is a steak dinner, good color is the garlic butter sauce. 

Today we will experiment with color and discuss the basics of color theory, and how to use that to make exciting compositions. We will create two still life paintings that explore this idea. 

Week 3. Define art... 

“Art is why i get up in the morning.”
—Ani Difranco

This week we will discuss “what is art.” Redefining “good art and bad art” as “successful and unsuccessful art,” and why both are ok.

This week will will experiment with abstract art concepts and methods. We will create a cityscape in beautiful downtown Covington.

Week 4. Self portrait. Endless opportunity for learning.

This week we will combine all of the knowledge we have learned so far, painting a self portrait using a method i have built based on layering techniques commonly used in printmaking.

Basic Acrylic Painting

Instructor: Rob Fairburn

Thursdays August 15, 22, 29, & September 5 from 6-8 pm


Acrylic Painting through a print-maker's eyes.

Over this 4 week course, students will explore value, color theory, the importance of experimenting, and methods of acrylic painting through an emphasis on process.


Week 1. Process is everything. 

“There is no cheating in art. It’s all method.”
—A Very Wise Man (Rob Fairburn)

Today we will talk about sculpting shape with value, and the importance of an under painting as a roadmap. We will make a blue and white value painting of a still life. 

Week 2. Value adds value. Color adds flavor.

If a good value painting is a steak dinner, good color is the garlic butter sauce. 

Today we will experiment with color and discuss the basics of color theory, and how to use that to make exciting compositions. We will create two still life paintings that explore this idea. 

Week 3. Define art... 

“Art is why i get up in the morning.”
