Posted by on Jun 25, 2019 in Artist Demonstrations, Classes, Events | 0 comments

The Second Saturday Art Walk will be held on July 13th in Jacksonville Oregon.  Don’t miss incredible art and wine.  Look for the neon green pennants to find participating businesses and join in the fun.

Art Presence Art Center will feature Anne Brooke providing a quick lesson in Color Theory, 30 minute sessions that come with a hand-out.  Even if you aren’t an artist, this is an opportunity to see why some colors fool the eye into movement and what it takes to make neutrals.

The neon green pennant will be at 206 North 5th Street in Jacksonville Oregon, call 541-941-7057 for more information

Class: Basic Drawing for Adults

Posted by on Mar 1, 2019 in Classes | 0 comments

“There is a notion that artists are born with the ability to draw. No one arrives in this world with that gift! Drawing is a skill that must be learned. It is not hard, but requires mental discipline.

“Drawing will develop a cooperative process between your mind and your eyes. The mind must relinquish the role of know-it-all and allow the eye to be the teacher. The mind makes a lot of assumptions. Most of the time these assumptions are close enough to reality that we can get along in the world. In drawing, however, the less you assume, the more you will SEE. Please join me on a journey to develop this skill.“

-Anne Brooke, Director
