As the Old Art Building, Ann Hall Visiting Artist for 2021 I will be teaching 3 classes during the first week of August at the OAB. Check out some of the details below.


Artists realize the important role drawing plays in developing ideas, concepts that become more involved works of art. As well, compositions are also often worked out with a pencil.

Drawing puts your creative process into motion and changes your relationship with your subject. Your brain will be amazed as you wake it up to unimaginable possibilities. We all can see, but by drawing we begin to look more intently and in turn, we really see. That is where and when the magic is unleashed. Let’s draw more, see more, and live more. All levels welcome!

Painting by its very nature is a form of abstraction. In order to avoid the built-in frustration we constantly face as artists we need to adjust our perception and the way we see.

As we begin to understand and accept abstraction we can approach our paintings with newfound freedom. This type of abstraction doesn’t mean we are splattering paint, but we are being much more present and engaged with our subject.

INSPIRED BY NATURE: Collage and More.

Designed for kids and their adult counterpart to create together

We will explore textures in nature. We will look at the world in new ways and observe relationships that trees have to each other and how the sky meets the trees. It all means something, and we are going to figure it out.
