Would you and/or your child like to learn how to draw and paint what you see? Throughout the past 20 years I have enjoyed watching hundreds of youth and adult students learn to draw and paint realistically by following my collection of straightforward techniques. 

In addition to drawing and painting, this summer I also will teach outdoor sculpture using natural materials, incorporating the basic elements and principles of design. 

And furthermore, we can have great fun mixing up the art lessons with improv theater games!

You are invited to explore the following summer course options:

Fun Art Intensives

In these three-hour sessions I will teach realistic drawing and painting, with options of making sculptures with natural materials and playing theater games. Depending on your family’s (and others’) schedule availability, we can schedule weekday mornings or afternoons throughout June and July.  Depending on whether the participants want to make art in Ashland or on the Greensprings, we will meet at one of two locations, the Ashland Art Center or Pinehurst School, mornings from 9 to 12 and/or afternoons from 1 to 4.  Fee:  $25 per session; $85 for four sessions. Please sign up for a minimum of two sessions. 

Day Trips—9am to 5pm

The participants spend the day together doing various forms of art, including realistic drawing and painting, sculpting with natural materials, and playing theater games. Depending on whether the participants want to make art in Ashland or on the Greensprings, we will meet at one of two locations, the Ashland Art Center or Pinehurst School, from 9am to 5pm.  ($55 per day) Students bring lunch and Deb provides snacks.  Day trip dates available:  June 21, July 3, July 5, July 9-13, July 16-20. 

Summer Camps at Ashland Art Center 

Also, I will be teaching two summer camps at Ashland Art Center:  1) For kids aged 7 to 9, 9:30am to 1pm, June 26-29 (https://www.ashlandartcenter.org/event/creative-adventures-with-deb-van-poolen/2018-06-26/); and 2) For kids aged 10 to 13 from July 24 to 27, 9:30am to 1pm each day (https://www.ashlandartcenter.org/event/creative-adventures-with-deb-van-poolen-2/2018-07-24/). 

I look forward to hearing your interest and thoughts about the above programs!
