For four Tuesdays in April, artist Deborah Meyer will focus on sharing a variety of techniques she has learned during the years she has been painting. Deb comments, "If we learn how to use our brushes and tools, the creative process becomes more enjoying and satisfying for the artist." Each artist will choose the subject matter that inspires and work in the media they prefer. Deb will be presenting demos throughout the class that will teach each participant how to use their materials to their fullest potential. All media's and levels of experience are welcome.

Bring the media of your choice: acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil, watercolour pencils, graphite, or water soluble oils.
If you choose paint, include in your paint supplies brushes and application materials appropriate to your medium as well as paper, canvas or board as a substrate. Carefully choose your reference material and bring it printed. It's very difficult to paint or draw from an electronic device. If using paints, i's always a good idea to bring a sheet of plastic to protect classroom tables.
Deborah Meyer, Artist and Instructor
Working predominantly in acrylic and oil, Meyer is a realist painter, taking elements of nature and exploring the abstract character of them. Her method of work involves layering multiple applications of glazes to achieve a depth and complexity in the style of the old masters. She employs contrasting texture and tones as well as rich, vibrant color to portray images of the world as she sees it. She began the study of painting as an art major in the early seventies and has enjoyed a career in the creative arts including advertising and interior design. Deb has been painting passionately and consistently since 1998.
