    10 Sessions with ADRIA BECKER 

    This ongoing art course offers a flow / grow / glow experience for all levels, from beginning to advanced students who appreciate the right-brain approach to artistic expression. Personal exploration and discovery are encouraged to unlock your unconscious creative energies. The course begins with contour drawing and evolves to the elements of painting composition – line, shape, color, value, and texture.  You will receive individual guidance, work at your own pace and arrive at your own style. Students may paint in either oil or acrylics. Classes are on Thursdays. Materials list AC7 PaintingAndDrawingMaterialsList2015.pdf.  Contact Adria with inquiries 818-642-1488

    ARTISTS' RECEPTION  FEBRUARY 24  5:00 - 7:00 PM

    Engraving is one of the oldest art forms. Engraved designs have been found on prehistoric bones, stones, and cave walls. The technique of duplicating images goes back several thousand years to the Sumerians (c. 3000 BCE), who engraved designs and cuneiform inscriptions on cylinder seals (usually made of stone), which, when rolled over soft clay tablets, left relief impressions. They conceived not only the idea of multiplication but also the mechanical principle, the roller, which in more sophisticated form became the printing press. This exhibit will highlight Printmaking in various methods including: Intaglio (engraving etching, drypoint, aquatint and mezzotint), Planographic (lithograph), Relief (woodcut, linocut and embossing), Stencil (serigraph or silkscreen), Monoprint and Paper Cutting (Scherenschnitte.)

    The juror for 2018 is John Paul Thornton, artist, author and educator. John Paul has written “Art and Courage: Stories to Inspire the Artist-Warrior Within.” Educated at Parsons School of Design and California State University at Northridge, John Paul has traveled extensively, enabling him to study global as well as western art. A beloved lecturer on art history, John Paul is also in demand as an art instructor. His series of portraits of America’s missing children has been exhibited widely, most notably at the National Mall in front of the White House and at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. He has received numerous grants and awards and was recognized by the California State Senate and United States Congress for his work linking social causes with art.

    Top Honors: Three major awards of cash, gift certificates or merchandise: 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place
    Special Honors: Gift certificates or merchandise.
