Montalvo Arts Center invites members of the Bay Area to release their creative side with four after-hours classes as part of its Summer Nights Series. Offered for beginners, experts, and all levels of curiosity, the subject of these Summer Arts Classes range from visual arts to cocktail mixology and botanical design. In a relaxed setting where experimentation is encouraged, attendees will enjoy guided instruction from professionals along with light refreshments and wine.
In this mixed media class, students will push the traditional drawing mediums of India Ink, Charcoal & Graphite into new directions under the instruction of art teacher Dana Harel. Students will be invited to brush on, splatter, drip, pour, and spray India ink, and use charcoal and graphite in unconventional ways – leading to unique results every attempt. Throughout the evening, participants will be guided through an investigation of these materials individually and then in combination, manipulating their properties into a cohesive final work of art.
