This class focuses on foundations in drawing for both beginners and those who wish to brush up on their drawing skills. Working with pencils, charcoal, and ink, students will learn about line quality, value range, composition, sighting, and perspective. Drawing from observation, participants will learn to reorient their minds to draw what they see using methods and strategies learned in class.
For adults and teens. All materials included.
Canadian-born, Cape Cod-based artist Jackie Reeves uses mixed media to bring together figurative and abstract elements in her art. She was raised in Montreal by architect parents and studied design art at Concordia University. Her artistic career began as a professional mural painter for corporate, private and public spaces. Concurrently, Reeves co-founded the Plymouth Community Art Center. In 2010 she earned her MFA in painting at Massachusetts College of Art and Design and has since exhibited in solo and group shows throughout Cape Cod, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Washington D.C., and North Carolina. She has been profiled in numerous publications including The Boston Globe, Art New England, and Artscope Magazine. She is the 2016 recipient of the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod's Fellowship award for Visual Arts and was selected by them to paint the 32nd annual Boston Pops by the Sea commemorative painting in 2017.
