Our third annual Bird Fest workshop with Georgia Audubon was inspiring! Check out the above video of our time together (Hint: fast forward through sections as you like!) The demo screen is not included, but there are still some pro tips here that I hope will inspire your art and birding practice!
This year's workshop on October 11th, 2020 was a hybrid program of on-line group instruction and individual, place-based learning. Here is some lovely feedback from the event:
"Loved the lesson, the reading and inspirations, and I would love to sign up for your spring class." ~Anna
"That was fun, informative and motivating for me to get back to drawing. Your manner is just right for teaching: gentle, patient, and eager to help." ~Cynthia
"Thank you so much for the great program! It was helpful to have a class format in order to dedicate time to this topic. I also loved the drawing warm ups, and the inspiration from the young artists, as well as the reading. Delightful!" ~Susan
Learning the Art of Egg Tempera
Fall Inspiration at Blue Heron
Since 2017, we have explored pen & ink, graphite, charcoal, colored pencil, egg tempera, and watercolor mediums while finding inspiration outside during the first forty minutes of class.
All workshops are held from 1-4pm at Blue Heron Nature Preserve and all ability levels are welcome. In fact, we find a mix of levels to be inspiring! Some feedback:
"Great class! I'm a beginner and you gave me confidence and made art fun. Thank you so much!"
"Christy's workshops are great!"
"Thanks for such a meaningful afternoon. I liked the group and the subject matter."
"I wouldn't change a thing!"
Private Lessons in Art
This time is all yours...
Engage the senses as you take a sojourn in the field and studio. The foundation of all our classes, workshops and camps began with this professional, private instruction which has been developed and taught by Christy Knight over the last twenty years. Christy reveals the tools and techniques garnered from a lifetime of experience as an illustrator and artist, building technical skills and championing your unique voice.
2020 lessons are virtual tried and true personal connections over FaceTime and include all the elements that inspire and instruct the individual artist, or join with a friend for $35 an hour!
Private lessons are professionally tailored to the specific needs of the Artist. Lesson time may include drawing exercises, painting techniques, botanical studies, portraiture, color theory, art history, all of the above or other. The lesson format establishes a routine much like one would for sports where there are warm up exercises, practice, new skills learned and a cool down routine.
Artists leave class confident, refreshed and inspired.
2020 Adult Pricing: $45 per hour of private instruction or join with a friend for $35 per lesson.
