Roberta Dyer Award Winning Art

Roberta Dyer
"Go Figure"

Registration Link

First of all, this is NOT a figure painting class—ha! Leave your rules and preconceived notions at home and join us for some fun on the way to reaching a new level of expression. 

You will choose a figure or object (your BFF, your teapot, your dog, yourself, etc.) and then loosely draw it to use as a jumping-off point for a mixed media adventure. Get ready to work with paint, acrylic mediums, marking tools and collage to create a dynamic artwork full of color and texture.  

Supply List ​(get 10% off individual items when you buy from Artist & Craftsman)

• Cost $199 (6 classes)
• For intermediate & advanced painters
• Student parking available in back lot
Be sure to pick up a Student Parking Pass at the front desk when you arrive.
