Bernadine's Drawing Class
Specifically designed for
the mature student (45+)

April 16 to June 4, 2011

This class limited to only 6 participants!

Registration is Now Open

Have you...

... always wanted to spend time making art? 
... thought that one day you would take up drawing or painting again, when you are not so busy with work, family, or life?
... wondered if it is too late to begin working on your artistic skills?
Not only is it never too late, participating in art activities will improve your health, sense of well-being and quality of life. In fact, research is showing that people who make art live longer, are happier, and have reduced levels of stress and physical pain.

Drawing is the foundation of all art forms.  It strengthens our hand/eye coordination.  This drawing course focuses on training your eyes to see, your brain to interpret, and your hands to create.  The objective is to introduce (or reintroduce) you to a variety of drawing exercises designed to improve your skills through an analysis of what is being seen and how that is interpreted on paper.  By employing these drawing exercises, you will see a dramatic improvement in your drawing ability within a short period of time.

This class is geared towards both experienced and inexperienced individuals (over 45) who are looking for a supportive environment to practice, rediscover, and/or engage their creative drawing ability.

“While learning in other disciplines may often focus on development of a single skill or talent, the arts, regularly engage multiple skills and abilities.  Engagement in the arts… nurtures the development of cognitive, social and personal competencies.”
Champions for change: The Impacts of the Arts on Learning (Cooley & Assoc.)
"Research has provided strong evidence that participation in arts and culture is linked to quality and longevity of life, happiness, reduction of anxiety and stress, decrease in pain and the need for medications, increase in self-confidence and self-esteem along with an overall sense of achievement. " (Cooley & Assoc. 2003)
"There is a “tremendous potential for preservation of brain functions induced by the visual arts.”  Konrad Mauer & Bruce Miller
