In my online school you can take classes from home whenever you like and you can return to them as much as you like! Once you buy a class you have it for life making it not only convenient but a great value!
Watercolor Landscape Workshop
Have you ever wished you could paint the beauty of nature with skill and ease? In Watercolor Landscape Workshop I will show you how to paint the different elements of landscapes! We will begin going over basic supplies, both from the art supply store and from your home and yard so you can start off on the right foot. Then we will break down the parts of the landscape and finally we will paint four complete landscapes together!
Soft Pastels for Beginners
In Soft Pastels for Beginners I will show you the tricks of the trade for creating beautiful works of pastel art with ease! Painting with pastels is the most direct form of putting pigment to paper. Nothing stands between you and the color in this medium! We will walk through the supplies and techniques and then create 4 complete paintings. I’ll even share how to mat and frame your works for longevity in the comprehensive class.
Watercolor Flower Workshop!
In Watercolor Flower Workshop I will share the techniques of capturing the beauty of flowers in watercolor using an impressionistic style. We will combine fundamental stroke work and disrupt it with splashes of water so the resulting paintings have a strong foundation with a effortless looking fluidity that characterizes the loose watercolor look.
Learn to Draw with Lindsay!
Learn to Draw with Lindsay is a complete drawing class that focuses on drawing skills and techniques. You will learn how to break down your subject into basic shapes and draw what you see. We begin with a series of timed warm up sketches and then proceed into complete drawing lessons focusing on form, shading, highlighting and composition. You will learn the basic tools and materials you may want to use for your drawings and discuss the advantages of each. We will work on toned and white paper in a variety of sketching mediums. My goal is for students, by the end of this course, to be able to take the skills they’ve learned and apply them to any subject matter so they can draw what they see accurately and with confidence. With nearly 8 hours of step-by-step instruction you will learn the fundamentals of drawing and sketching people, animals, landscapes and still life.
Texture Toolbox: Feathers & Fowl
In this class you will build the skills necessary to paint expressive portraits of your feathered friends! You will learn techniques to effortlessly build feather texture from fluffy and fuzzy to sleek and smooth. I will show you simple methods for drawing birds as well as a fancy peacock feather, then we will paint them using a limited palette of colors. We will complete four finished paintings in this course, from a sassy bird shaking off after a bath to an elegant swan and a regal looking colorful duck. We will also paint the trendy and decorative peacock feather (better paint a few of those because your friends will ask for them!) Don’t worry if you don’t like to draw as there will be patterns you can print and trace on your watercolor paper if you prefer. I will show you how to use, and were to find, reference photos for your artwork and give you tips on how to use the photos as a jumping off point and alter them to meet your artistic style. Finally I will share how to fix problems with finished paintings or enhance them with optional mixed media techniques using colored pencils and pens. Are you ready to embark on a flight of fancy? Well then, let’s get started!
