    ArtSpeak: Visual Arts Critique Group

    Are you looking to improve your creative development with constructive feedback?

    Join ArtSpeak: our Visual Arts Critique Group. All mediums and experience levels are welcome. You just have to be open to new ideas and productive feedback.

    Bring whatever you are working on and, as a group, we will offer insight on how we, as viewers, are experiencing the piece and offer thoughts on how to further your creative expression. Technique and idea exchange are essential aspects of critique, so come ready to share!

    The group will meet via Zoom until we are able to meet in person at ArtWaves.

    You will receive a Zoom link once you’ve booked this service.

    Grab your paint brushes and join our watercolor painting group! We will be painting our way through the winter blues. Via Zoom, Erica will lead you through live, interactive watercolor paint-alongs. She will share lots of tips and techniques to help you grow your watercolor skills.

    No experience is necessary. Open to all skill levels. During each session, Erica will provide step-by-step instruction on how to paint each beautiful scene in an easy and approachable way.

    Prior to the workshop, you will receive a pdf of the under drawing which you can trace or use as a guide to draw your own, a materials list and a video showing how to get yourself set up and ready to paint.

    This class is designed as an ongoing class throughout the fall and winter. It will meet every other week. Participants are asked to commit to 4 session blocks at a time.

    Open to all ages, however younger children should be accompanied by an adult

    Beginners Sketch Book Club -Establishing Practice

    Free to members, by donation for non members

    This Sketch Book Club is for everybody! We believe creativity starts with an idea. From quick conceptual sketches to fully finished artwork, sketching is at the core of all art.  

    Your sketchbook is a place to keep creative ideas and make drawings as you go about your day.  Sketch books are the new yoga, a way to relax and stretch your mind.  Whether you are doodling or sketching a landscape the time and effort you put into sketching creates the desired effect of relaxing and using your brain to create art. 

    Join us for a conversation about our own drawings, book recommendations and being part of a community that values drawing.

    Maximum 12 per 6 sessions
