Beginning Portrait Drawing
Beginning Portrait Drawing is a class where you will learn the proportions and principles of Drawing the Head, whether it's a self-portrait, a friend or favorite pet. You may choose to do a portrait that is very simple or complex. Bring in a number of things from which we can choose the best and clearest image for you to work from. Adrian will do demos to begin with so that you can understand the principles of proportion. Once you understand these principles you will apply what you've learned. It's really very fun and satisfying to be able to create portraits. Looking forward to you joining this fall.

Finding Your Inner Artist 
Perhaps you think it’s too late to try your hand at creating art, but we know it’s not! All you need is an interest in two dimensional visual art and a desire to create something new. Join artist Adrian Deckbar, who has 35 years of teaching experience, and other like-minded adults as we embark on a fresh approach: to have some fun while learning new skills in art. Come learn about mixing colors, applying paint with skill, and other techniques. Is there something you always wanted to learn but couldn’t find the right class? Adrian can assist you in whatever mode or medium you wish. Design your own problem to solve in this class. Visit adriandeckbar.com to learn more. This class is open to all levels.
