On vacation, many travelers take photo's; some keep a diary of their impressions. But, a sketch of what you see and feel when experiencing the moment can provide a long-lasting record that stimulates your "play-back" description. This course provides students of all levels an opportunity to practice sketching impressions, on the spot and from photo's, along with instructor demonstration and instruction. At first, a pencil and sketchpad will be used to capture stationary objects then, we will graduate to create movement of shapes and finally, add sensory impressions. As confidence increases, students will be encouraged to add pastel, ink or water color to complement the memory of movement. There will be plenty of opportunity to experience inside and outside the classroom. You may find a masterpiece grow out of your thumbnail sketch with time and instructor oversight. This sketch may be all you want or need to tell the story of your experience.

Calligraphy - The Art of Beautiful Writing arrow

Click to choose from multiple offerings

Night and the city; hard boiled detectives and sinister femme fatales; damaged heroes and innocent ingenues. These are some of the ingredients that make up one of the most original genres in American film history. From the early 1940s to the late 1950s these mostly low budget black and white films captured the cynicism and disillusionment of post World War II America, while at the same time introducing some of the most skilled directors and most iconic actors of the 20th century (Humphrey Bogart, Burt Lancaster, Robert Mitchum, Barbara Stanwyck, and Ava Gardner). This course will analyze some of the most well known films of this period, beginning with "Double Indemnity" and including such classics as "The Big Sleep," "The Killers," and "Out of the Past." So grab your old trenchcoat and join us for a visit to the dark side of the big city streets.
