A Novice class requires no prior experience in a particular medium, and minimal art materials will need to be purchased. Basic drawing skills or knowledge of design principles are encouraged to get the most out of the class, but are not required. You will produce a simple artwork featuring the medium, as well as possibly samples or a sketchbook. Gentle encouragement will be offered throughout.
A Beginner class requires some experience or a previous workshop in a medium. Basic drawing skills or knowledge of design principles are encouraged. Students will need to purchase a set of basic art supplies. You will produce a finished work in the medium, and experience gentle encouragement as well as suggestions for future work or classes.
An Advanced Beginner class requires some experience with the medium, as well as good drawing and design skills. Students will purchase artist-quality materials and equipment and receive guidance for future purchases. Class time will focus on demonstration, lecture, and plenty of hands-on work time. You will produce one or more finished works. Artistic critiques and suggestions about future direction in your work can be expected.
An Intermediate class requires a facility with techniques and tools of a particular medium, expertise in drawing and basic elements of design, and the ability to work independently. Students will already own artist-quality equipment and materials, and will supplement with some new purchases. Concentration will be on new techniques, experimentation, and implementation in your current body of work. You may produce finished works or begin a number of new pieces. Rigorous critiques by instructor and students include technical as well as conceptual suggestions for future work.
An Advanced class requires experience, confidence, and competency with a medium, sound drawing and design principles, and quality artist-grade materials. The main goal is artistic growth and creative challenge. Students will continue to progress on a body of work; a finished work may not be produced. The focus on hands-on works will be balanced with a rigorous program of critique by self, instructor, and peers. You will develop your own goals for future work.
