ARTIST TRACK

Frank Ordaz | Ryan Moon | Cathy Gallatin | Mera Oliveria | Jennifer Garrett

For the first day and 1/2, Mon (17) - Tues (18), students following the Artist Track will be gathered together for teaching on the fundamentals of strong drawing skills, which are essential to all skilled painting. This will include instruction from Frank Ordaz and Ryan Moon covering  principles of design/composition, values, light source, technical elements of art, as well as color theory.  Here also, we will touch on digital art/drawing with Jennifer Garrett. 

This time will include hands-on exercises to immediately put skills into practice. This basic teaching of the fundamentals will provide students with a strong foundation on which to build, develop, and master other specialized skills coming in later sessions. 

Then finish the week in your specific area of study with Frank Ordaz, Ryan Moon or the mural/chalk art track with Cathy Gallatin and Mera Oliveria.
