Module details:

1. Doodle. Drawing with eyes closed
Do you doodle? Many people love to scribble away absent-mindedly, and often these doodles can carry a great deal of meaning, and for the artist, can sometimes be the source of inspiration for serious artworks. It may seem that doodling are just scribbles where one draws without any clear purpose or outcome. I will teach you how to just let your hand move and follow it’s fancy. At the end of the class you will agree with me that doodling is definitely an “expressionism” category of art.

This second part of the module will be one of the most beneficial lessons you will keep for life! Drawing with eyes closed will improve your brain’s ability to correlate visual input with the locomotion of your hand, arm and shoulder.
We will create harmony and balance through your compositions. I will help you create engaging images inspired by whatever lies inside of you as an artist.

2. Understanding Light .  Shading
How do you bring 3 Dimension to your drawings? How do you bring light to your drawings? Shading does this. In this part of the course we will focus on the development of observational skills and drawing techniques, employing a wide range of drawing media including charcoal, graphite, conte, and ink.

3. Geometrical Drawing
Examine the principles of geometric design that are the basis for the beautiful and intricate patterns in the art world, especially in Islamic art.
In this practical class we will create geometric patterns, discovering how designs of extreme beauty and sophistication can be developed from the simplest of means – using a compass and ruler.

You will also learn about ‘Patterns’ and ‘Tessellations”

4. Water color pencil
In many ways, watercolor pencils are even more versatile than watercolors. Watercolor pencils have luminous and transparent like qualities, similar to watercolors, enabling rich and radiant build up of color. You will be exploring techniques and methods and discover the various capabilities, boundaries and strengths of working with colored pencils.

5. Paper Sculpture
With just a scissors and some colored paper, you will be able to learn how to fold, cut, curl, score and create intricate designs and amazing works of art. Unlike Origami, you will be crafting with many pieces of paper, be it plain white or multicolor. I’ll be showing you the techniques for designing and making a layered paper sculpture from scratch – planning, plotting and cutting. No prior paper skills will be needed.

6. Thread Art
Ever imagined thread could be used as a medium, instead of paint? I have experimenting with thread since the late 90’s and eventually have mastered this medium. I will lead you through the process and techniques enabling you to create stunning works of art using thread.
Here is a an article on my Thread Art published in a Malaysian newspaper – The Star (Sep 2000) http://issuu.com/patricrozario/docs/starmetro_rozariomagic

7. Pearlappetite

You will never find this technique tought anywhere in the world. Painting on glass plates using acrylics and 3D puffy paints. While still dry, embed them with a lively combination of pearls, semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals, and glass beads, transforming them into vibrant display art.

8. Sculpting – Paper Mache
You will discover almost anything can be created using paper mache. You can make your own jewelry, vases, bowls, masks, pinatas, or even furniture. You are only limited by your imagination. Most of folks out there associate paper mache with children’s school projects but paper mache started out as and remains a medium for fine art. You will discover why, and surely will unearth another creative side of you.

9. Sculpting – Air Hardening Clay
Air-hardening modeling clays allow you to create permanent, hardened works of clay art without the need for ovens or kilns. These water-based clays are convenient and inexpensive to work with. I will be teaching you pinching, rolling and coiling traditional methods, as well as some non-traditional possibilities such as stamping impressions, or embedding beads and other objects – for a wide variety of creative possibilities.

10. Decoupage
Decoupage can be loosely defined as the act of applying paper cutouts to surfaces and sealing them in place with varnish. The technique, perfected in France, China, Japan, and Russia, dates back centuries, yet decoupage is still popular. There are techniques for decoupage fabric, candles, glass, blown out eggshells, soap, terra cotta, and many other surface materials. In my class we begin with traditional paper on wood applications. Soon you will be taking ordinary objects and turn them into works of art.

11. Acrylic Painting Technique
Acrylic is such a fantastic versatile medium. Acrylics, although similar in style and finish to oils, gives subtly different but important qualities to your work. Probably, its biggest benefit is its speed of drying. As an accomplished artist using acrylics, I will be teaching you simple traditional techniques to complex methods (brush and knife) useful for both experienced artist as well as beginners.

12 Painting with Coffee
Have you ever thought about using nice, warm, aromatic coffee in your mug to paint? Believe it or not, it’s a wonderful medium for monochromatic artwork, with a wide range of rich brown hues. You may not know it, but painting with coffee has drawn global attention and has attracted a strong following.  What is better than sipping a delicious cup of coffee and creating a work of art of a favorite landscape, market scene, an animal or a human profile? I will teach you how. Call me for coffee.
