    This class is a great opportunity for students to learn about drawing life, studies, and collaborating with others in making a cool puzzle mural about the human habitat. We all need some things to live… We all want other things. Some things come and go. How can we illustrate that in a way that says it’s US?

    Starting with graphite, we will work on drawing from life, how to draw with your eyes, and finish the piece of the puzzle that becomes a complete mural! These classes will be using drawing, painting, glued on and other type of materials. Students will take home mementos and iron ons of their creative, collaborative efforts.

    About the Instructor:
    Barbie Watts is a multitalented artist who has been teaching and mentoring children in drawing in Sonoma County for the last decade. As an illustrator, her work has been commissioned as logos, posters, and signs, as well as landscapes, portraits, animals, abstract, collage, glue art, mobiles, and puzzle murals.
    Barbie’s nurturing personality creates an encouraging environment for students of all ages. She uses graphite for doodling and even some visual meditation to begin the class warm ups. A little art history and vocabulary, demonstrations, handouts, and weekly themes keep the students on track and excited as their work develops! She teaches a variety of disciplines, from loose to academic.
    Barbie is known for having a full array of drawing media and tool available, as well as watercolor, paper mache, metal, wire, wax, and more for drawing, painting, and building incorporated in her lessons. She finds a variety of disciplines allow her to give individualized attention so her students learn what works best for their own personal vision and artwork.
