Fall 2016 Art Class Offerings

Good morning, class! (This is when you all respond in unison: “Good morning, Professor Craz!”)

As fall approaches, it’s time to find your favorite hoodie, sip your favorite warm beverage, and make some artwork! I am offering some of my popular Prismacolor Marker classes yet again but the advanced course is covering a new art piece with the holidays in mind. The Introduction course is low commitment (all supplies provided) with an additional worksheet to learn texture and background techniques including grassy fields, starry skies, fur, and brick.
