Kenneth Cobb of Mansfield will be teaching the Fundamentals of Drawing and Painting Workshop, featuring classes on ten Saturdays. All of the classes are free and open to adults and teens, ages 14 and older. Participants are not required to attend every class.
The workshop is funded through a Pennsylvania Partners of the Arts Project Stream Grant.
A different lesson on a specific medium and/or a fundamental concept of drawing or painting is being offered from noon to 3 p.m. on each of the following Saturdays – Feb. 16 and 23, March 2, 16, 23 and 30, and April 6, 13, 20 and 27. The GPS address for the workshop classes is Room 124 Allen Hall, Mansfield University, Mansfield, Pa. 16933. The instructor will provide all of the materials for the classes.
“This workshop is specifically geared for those new to the arts, but all experience levels are welcome,” Cobb said, adding, “If participants choose to take all ten classes they will gain a fairly well-rounded experience of two-dimensional media. Many adults will probably not be able to make every class or will not be interested in certain topics depending on their experience level. That’s why classes are individually offered in this workshop.”
Space is limited and preregistration is required. Email Cobb at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive detailed information about the classes and to reserve a seat.
