Connecting Lines with Drawing Techniques at Island Art Association
Jan 01, 2016 02:00AM
Lori Ann has been drawing and painting since her early childhood on Long Island, New York. Her passion and drive earned her both MFA & BFA degrees from the School of Visual Arts, in New York city. Immediately after graduation, she started a 22-year career instructing visual arts at College level, and grades 6 through 12. While teaching she followed her dreams and illustrated books. The industry of illustration began to slowly evolve into computer generated artwork and because she is a traditional artist trained in classical mannerism, Lori turned away from illustration and began a business predominantly of commissions, drawing portraits of people, homes, and businesses. Her artwork is a reflection of her life. Each location and life experience become an intimate part of her artwork.
Lori Ann’s students will be able to personalize their work while having a relaxing and enjoyable morning out. The classes will cover rendering tones and values, shadowing, blending colors, techniques with a variety of lines, watercolor washes, and using pastels. A session using natural dyes and painting in Asian style will be included. This class is on a first-come first-served basis with limited spaces. Cost for the classes is $195 and a $50 deposit is required. For more information or to register, contact Lori at [email protected] or call (570) 905-5765.
