Art club offers ‘Try Me’ classes starting in October

The Sun West Art Club offers a series of “Try Me” art workshops beginning Oct. 26. Each workshop will concentrate on learning about and trying a single art medium. There will be one “Try Me” class scheduled each month, and each will enable attendees to work with a specific type of art in an all-day workshop with supplies provided, all for $35.

The workshops will be 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Kuentz Art Studio.

The October workshop will be instructed by Dave Coutts and focus on drawing. Coutts began his career in advertising with design and illustration. He started teaching drawing, composition and art in 1990, primarily at private colleges in Los Angeles and the Phoenix area. He retired from the Phoenix Art Institute and has been an art teacher for the Sun West Art Club for more than two years. Coutts’ “Try Me” drawing class will explore basic drawing techniques and focus on composition skills and terminology. Students will have the opportunity to work on exercises to practice some of the techniques presented. Coutts is also teaching a “Try Me” class on acrylics in February.

In November, the program will focus on pastels and be taught by Patti Hoffert. In December, Colene Clark will present mixed media and Tanya Lemma will teach a watercolor class. Dave Buckbinder will cover oil painting in January.
