Workshops Offered . . .

Painting and Drawing:

I have taught art for more than 35 years to students of all levels. It is a great pleasure to share my knowledge with others, especially individuals who are just starting out or are in the intermediate phase and want to develop a solid base from which to explore their own ideas. 

The emphasis of the workshop can be geared to the needs of your organization.                                                                                                 
A typical workshop lasts 8 hrs and is spaced over 2 days.

Areas of instruction: 
Each material listed below can be taught independently or as a package of two or three.

Painting: watercolor, ink, gouache
Drawing: pencil, pen, pastel, charcoal, colored pencil
Mixed media: All the above materials work well together when handled correctly and combining them make for an exciting extended workshop.

Students supply their own materials or a supply charge is added to the student fee if I supply the materials. Usually around $5.
Class size: 6 – 15 students. 
Age level: 16 and older.
Costs: $40/hour plus travel and lodging.

An Evening with the Visual Arts:

This program is offered in conjunction with an exhibition to celebrate and promote greater appreciation of the visual arts. Suggested topics include “What Is Art”, “Themes and Purposes” and “the Elements and Principles”.

Additional options for An Evening with the Visual Arts include those developed as a series titled “Six Conversations about Art” and are designed to introduce the public to the world of art. Each Conversation is an hour and a half power point presentation and followed by a half hour public discussion.

Poetry Reading and Exhibit:

This program accompanies an exhibition of my illustrated poetry and branches out to include other favorite poets, their work and accompanying illustrations. Suggested time of reading 45minutes, followed with a discussion of how the poems and visuals were developed.

Clint’s class made me rediscover the love of drawing. Techniques were well explained, easy to understand and follow.
Step by step demonstrations allowed students to build on their skills.

As a quilter, it was becoming clear that an art “basis” would be helpful in creation of art quilts. I reached out to Clint seeking some basic drawing/sketching knowledge to assist us in finding image shadows and light to more effectively select fabrics and to thread sketch.

From my fairly vague desires, Clint developed a custom class for quilters, exploring a set of lines/marks we could use to create texture and contrast, composition, image transfer and resizing.

The class was perfect! All in attendance found it very helpful and are excited to take that knowledge to fiber!

Clint's class was such fun!

Clint is relaxed and positive. He makes everyone feel they are succeeding and improving. I can hardly wait for the next one!

~ Charlotte Orr ~

Clint is a master teacher.

In every class he interacts enthusiastically with each student. I’ve been in several of his drawing classes and in each one, he has new techniques and insights to share.

~ Mary Frieze ~

Clint Loomis has offered a wide variety of art classes for our adult education program over the last fifteen years. His classes have always been popular!

Students feel he is an excellent art instructor, but also express how relaxing and fun his classes are for the participants. There is no pressure to “be talented”, but rather to simply enjoy the creative experience.
