Abstract art can be one of the most beautiful, and also one of the most intimidating to create. Don't be afraid! Abstract art is one of my personal favorites to create, and I will help show you how easy it can be once you know the basics. We'll go step by step through what makes a great abstract piece, and how you can get there. It takes some practice but before long you'll be making abstract pieces that are a joy to create. Let's get started!

If you’re interested in learning photography – congratulations! Photography is a fun, practical hobby as well as an exciting career. Although learning photography does take a little patience, the rewards are certainly worth it. So, let’s start with the benefits of why you should learn photography.

- The ability to record special events like a child’s birthday, graduation or the family’s vacations with clear, focused well composed photographs.

- Never missing a picture of a special moment because you were searching for the right button or dial.

- Taking photos that you and your loved ones will enjoy displaying on your wall. By capturing your special memories in pictures, you can have a way to document and pass on these memories to future generations.

- Communicating through your photographs. A picture really is worth a thousand words! You can capture an expression that says it all. Or as we've seen in magazines like Time and National Geographic, you can shoot photographs ...

We will learn the very basic mechanics of how to paint with watercolors. We will explore different techniques in watercolor painting, including washes, wet in wet work, and glazing. There will be practice exercises each lesson that then will be applied to a painting. Working in this beautiful medium is fun and rewarding. My lessons and classes are designed for the beginner just getting comfortable with watercolor, as well as the intermediate painter.

About Karen

I love showing people how fun creating can be, and helping them tap into their own creativity no matter how deep down it may be buried! My passion is watercolor painting and I really want to share this amazing medium with you. All levels are welcome, especially those who have never tried watercolor

Karen’s beginner watercolor class was a fun and easy atmosphere to learn in . She was very encouraging while demonstrating and talking about the skills we practiced while producing finished pictures. I have a whole new respect for water and paint!
Cynthia
I have been very much enjoying Karen’s watercolor painting. classes. The class is fun and I am learning from it.
At the beginning of each class , she starts with a helpful lesson on watercolor techniques and then she has us proceed to working on our paintings. . She has a pleasant personality and provides the
right amount of instruction and encouragement.
Because of COVID, our classes had to go virtual, but she has managed online teaching very well. She even purchased an additional camera, so that we can clearly see the technique she is demonstrating to us.
Kathy Andrzejewski
This class was a wonderful experience for learning beginning watercolor skills. I enjoyed Karen's pleasant engaging manner of instruction. She was very dynamic online can't imagine what it would have been like in person. I plan to take additional classes with her in the future to increase my skill level.

Do you want to learn to draw your favorite characters, your pets, friends and family members? Or maybe you want to draw fantastical creatures with magical powers? Maybe you’re a medical student interested in drawing anatomy to help you study? Perhaps, you’re more interested in making intense abstract emotional drawings with deep philosophical meaning? Or, maybe you just want to learn to draw eyes and hands better? Whatever your area of focus or skill level, I will help you to sharpen your observational skills, expand your understanding of important art principles, become comfortable with a variety of drawing media, and teach you to translate your ideas onto the page to bring them to life. I believe art is an invaluable form of expression meant to bring the student peace, joy and a broadly applicable set of skills. My lessons are customized to the needs and goals of each individual student with subjects ranging from life art, to digital illustration, to mixed media drawing, and much ...

"I took an online course with Julie last week. Her passion for her craft is truly evident in her teaching. The first part of the course she taught me how to use my extended flash and explained how to compensate for lighting.
In the second part of the lesson, Julie went over my best work and explained how to crop, take the picture better the first time, and how I could improve each shot. Her comments were extremely helpful.
I left the session knowing exactly what I had to do to improve my photograpy. I feel more motivated to be better.
I have taken her classes at SCC, and learned different types of photography such as motion shots, shooting fireworks at night, ocean photography and more.
Thank you Julie for your assistance."
