June 22, 24, and 26 (3 Days, 9 Total Hours of Instruction)




We are pleased to offer this class online using Zoom video conferencing. This mimics, as closely as possible, what normally happens in our classrooms at the Athenaeum. In this time when many of us are experiencing anxiety and isolation, this format allows us to continue to provide enriching experiences of artistic growth and community building.


The technology to make this happen is quite simple. You only need a computer (phone or tablet) with a camera, microphone, and internet connection and we are here to help you should you experience any technical difficulties.


Once you register, look for an email with more information and detailed instructions in the week preceding the class start date.


Stay safe and be well! And thank you for your continued support of our school.


MATERIALS: Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens, waterproof, black. There’s a pack of four that has nib sizes superfine, fine, medium, and brush. (*Be sure they are not the four-pack that are thick pens used for calligraphy.) One 9” x 12” watercolor pad (90–140 lb. is good). Watercolor: If you have watercolors, just use what you have. If you want to buy some, you can get the Prang brand, 16-standard-colors set, or splurge and get a travel Winsor & Newton set with professional colors. The sets usually come with a brush. I recommend you get an additional brush (#6 or 8 round) and a square wash brush (1/2 inch). If you have tubes of paint, be sure to set up your palette before class. You will need a water container and paper towels. Feel free to use any pens or paper you would like to try. If you would like to get a travel water brush, Niji is the best brand. Also have on hand a 4B pencil, sharpener, and kneaded eraser. You will need a selection of at least 8 to 10 photos from your travels or somewhere you would like to go. They can be landscape, architecture, food, and landmarks.
