NEW CLASS! Beginning Drawing and Acrylic Painting

Saturdays 9:15-10:30 a.m. $35.00 per class
One Time material fee $50.00 (covers all materials)

Gain confidence in your drawing and painting abilities by developing new skills and techniques
with a professional artist in a comfortable studio. Students will expand their knowledge of various techniques and will learn how to employ the art elements and principles: line, value, texture, shading, light, color etc… to express, explore and develop their skills.

At the beginning of each lesson, students will be introduced to a new artist (throughout history) and will then work on a drawing or painting by practicing the style, skills, techniques and/or mediums employed by that artist. With this method, students will grasp the technique through the process, learn some art history and comprehend why or what makes an artwork strong.

Individual guidance will be provided as each student is encouraged to work at their own pace and skill level. This is a non competitive class, the goal is to have fun while you learn!  This class is ongoing (students can begin and end whenever).

Attendance and Payment:
Payment is due by the 1st of every month, based on a monthly cycle, (4-5 week) period.Please provide at least a 24 hour notice through email or text prior to class if you will be absent. If I am not contacted within that time frame, you will be charged regardless. If given 24 hours notice prior to an absence, we can reschedule or you can deduct that amount from the following month fee. Payment options include chase quickpay/zelle, venmo, check (made to Sandra Dawson), or cash.

“I can’t recommend classes with Sandy enough! Her Encaustic class has easily made Wednesdays my favorite day of the week. It’s funny that I was worried I’d be intimidated by her tremendous talent, but I wound up finding the exact opposite. Sandy is so supportive and encouraging (no matter what the level of her students), and she creates a great environment of playfulness and experimentation. I encourage anyone looking to rekindle that creative spark to try one of her classes.”

“ This was a great first encounter with encaustic mixed media and at SD Studios. It was a great experience and I will definitely return. I encourage anyone who is considering taking a class to do so. Sandra provides the supplies and the environment is comfortable. You work at your own pace. ”

“ Great, I recommend it for new and experienced and I between artists! ”

“Sandy is great with all skill levels and interests. My daughter learned to paint through private lessons and I have loved learning new skills like encaustic and mixed media art. We both look forward to what each new lesson brings!”
