Painting and Drawing Masterpieces

Because we offer so many cool classes and workshops at Creative Genius, a lot of people tend to overlook the fact that we also offer PAINTING and DRAWING CLASSES and we have for the past 8 1/2 years. Currently our painting and drawing programs include an offering for TEENS, an offering for KIDS and two offerings for ADULTS and everyone in our program seems to really enjoy themselves--and learn too.

When exploring any art medium, it is important to work with many instructors to freshen your perspective. We are proud of our painting and drawing instructor, Wendy Campbell, who does a fantastic job of balancing creativity, patience, objectivity and skill level to create a program that is interesting and draws her students in (no pun intended!). She is very talented and has a fine art degree but also continually studies in formal classes and workshops to fine tune and hone her own skills, all while working on creating programs that seem to generate a lot of interest for her students here at Creative Genius. She communicates to her students that talent isn't always the whole picture when it comes to the arts. On her latest class flyer she wrote: Artistic talent is not innate. It is the result of experimentation and lots of practice. Agreed!

This week her Adult Morning Students worked on sketching golden beets (lots of character in those objects!). Her Teen Class spent two hours learning about and practicing circle painting by creating a moveable mural on canvas as a group. Everyone contributed and the results were very cool. Pictures shown give you an idea of what was created.

The Kids Class, along the same lines, created individual circle paintings and explored a more modified version of the exercise. They still got to paint on the floor, which got all of them excited to start.

Painting and Drawing Classes are offered year round at Creative Genius. Prices vary per program. Figure Drawing workshops are also offered throughout the year. For more information or to become a part of our artistic and creative family of students, call 609-714-1131 or email julie@creativegeniusonline.
