We have created a series of new instructed art programs at Panepinto Galleries designed to serve the needs of a range of artistic abilities - from the beginner, to the more seasoned artist. Our affordable art classes are taught by skilled and accomplished instructors in a comfortable and supportive environment.
In October 2012, we will be offering instructional classes in Figure Drawing, Oil Painting, and Photography.
We allow students to "drop-in" on classes and pay as you go at $38 per class, OR you can sign up now for the full six-week session at $190 & receive a DISCOUNT OF ONE FREE CLASS!
Here are our Fall offerings (you will receive an invite with further detail about what you will be learning each week upon joining the group):
- DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS (Mondays 7-9pm, Oct. 15-Nov. 19) Learn to use your digital SLR camera. Further detail forthcoming in the individual invite.
- INSTRUCTIONAL FIGURE DRAWING (Tuesdays 7-10pm, Oct. 16-Nov. 20) In this course we will explore figure drawing, incorporating the study of basic anatomy. Gaining an understanding of the muscular structure of the human figure greatly enhances the depth and reality of figurative work. We will focus on important muscles, discussing works by artists that illustrate an understanding of anatomy. Our instructor, Marshall Jones, is an accomplished artist and teacher. He currently teaches at the Art Students League of New York and the Salmagundi Club in New York.
- INSTRUCTIONAL OIL PAINTING CLASS (Wednesdays 7-10pm, Oct. 17-Nov. 21) Working in oils, students will be given the option to paint from a still life or their own subjects (i.e. photos or personal objects). Students will be encouraged to go at their own pace. The initial focus will be on the drawing phase with an emphasis on composition and concept. From there, students will progress to basic color theory and value organization. This course is open to all levels. Our instructor, Liz Adams-Jones, teaches at Urban Arts at Monroe in Hoboken and the Art Center of New York.
We: will provide the instruction, music, and inspiration. Our venue features 3,500 square feet of renovated warehouse space with 14' ceilings.
You: order in some food and bring your favorite bottle of wine, your materials or an easel, should you desire to use one. Let the demands of your work day fade away as we indulge in the meditative art process.
Explore your creativity in the Powerhouse Arts District of Jersey City; all artists and aspiring creatives are encouraged to join.
