She has painted under Parl Carlson; studied drawing/painting under Char Avrunin and colored pencils under Mark Menendez; she has been a demonstrator at Quick Draw, sold paintings at Gallery 86 and exhibited and sold paintings/drawings at 5 Iam Art Show/Fundraisers. She continues to have many private commissions. In addition, Scottie has extensive experience working with children.
HAPPY, FUN ART CLASSES, after school, for ages 5-12. Children learn to "see" what they're looking at and the shapes it contains. Students use multi-media for coloring their drawings - crayons, felt tip pens, watercolors, acrylic paint, oil pastels and color pencils. They learn art techniques like shading, color mixing, perspective and which colors are warm and which are cool. Some classes do individual drawings or paintings and at other times, they do one class project. Each child is given individualized instruction, using the PROTIQUE tm method, stressing: 1) what is working and why (using art terms they've learned in class); and 2) what could be improved, if anything, and how (again, using art terms). Classes are held in a safe, secure space where the students can learn art techniques, create and be challenged while exploring their artistic potential.
Students also enjoy exhibiting in the Children's art section of the annual Iam Art Show/Fundraiser.
Location: 2nd floor, MAC Building, First Baptist Church, 100 S. Main St. Waynesville NC (come in back side door under the brick archway).
To register or for more information on the course work, please contact Scottie directly at firstname.lastname@example.org 828-452-4106. Classes fill quickly, so try to secure space for your child/grandchild asap.

ED KELLEY, "This course will consist of 4 classroom sessions and one on-location outing. The classes are geared toward those with DSLR, advanced point & shoot, or mirrorless cameras, or any digital camera that has a manual mode or manual override. The core principles will be the same. Class size is limited to 12 with a minimum of 6 participants to allow for as much individual instruction as possible, as I want each person to know the functions of their cameras.
For more information, use the "Contact Us" feature above or email Char at mailto:email@example.com.
