Experience the joy and stress relief that comes from the meditative practice of drawing! 

Student artists will use a variety of subject matter to learn new drawing techniques, build upon prior strengths, or strike out into developing their own portfolio. Practice drawing from life and understand how to create relationships in space through observation-based drawing from the choice-based subject matter and learn about perspective drawing.  Experience the ease and success of guided drawing exercises. Experiment with a variety of media and techniques, including graphite, charcoal, and colored pencils, expressive use of line, and a variety of approaches to mark-making. Drawing students will also learn about composition, activating the negative space, contour line drawing, and how to create form, volume, and dimension through applying various shading techniques.

Masks are required at all times while inside the Art Center.


About the Teacher:

Born and raised in Central New York, Warner graduated from SUNY Potsdam with a double major in fine art in drawing and painting and anthropology, concentrating on Historical Archaeology. After working as a historical archaeologist at Fort Drum and later as a furniture painter for Mackenzie-Childs of Aurora, Warner moved west to Colorado in 1998. While living in Denver, Warner earned her MA in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Denver and her K-12 art teaching license. Warner created Time for Art, a fine art enrichment program running in Denver, CO, from 2006-2016 for Denver area schools, museums, and cultural centers, and Time for Art and Yoga in the Central New York area from 2015-2019. While living in Colorado, Warner instructed all artists’ ages in drawing, painting, and mixed media out of her South Central Denver studio for Denver Public Schools and San Diego City Schools, establishing a Master Teaching Artist Residency Program. In addition, Warner enjoyed teaching Portfolio, preparing students to apply to Denver School of the Arts, and teaching art appreciation for Red Rocks Community College. Warner studied graduate-level painting at Sacramento State with Joan Moment and is currently finishing her Portfolio, earning an MFAIA through Goddard College, developing a new embodied somatic painting practice as an expansion opportunity for experienced, multidisciplinary artists and an accessible process-based technique for artists of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. Warner has been both a MA teaching artist since 2007 and a professional exhibiting artist since 2002, exhibiting in NY, Denver, and San Diego.
