We will meet indoors at the Faculty Club on the UC Berkeley Campus. Maybeck, the turn-of-the-last-century arts and crafts architect of the Faculty Club was inspired by the concept of seeing nature outside, having few distractions indoors and by using indigenous materials and celebrating nature. So bring your pencils, pens and sketch pad and we will do quick sketches in the morning.
We can sketch interior spaces (like Van Gogh’s loose and lively interiors) or choose to “frame” nature looking through the windows. In the afternoon we will develop one of the sketches into a finished drawing, and working on larger paper. Joan will demonstrate how to layout an “interior” and we will view and critique our works of art. The Club offers an enjoyable lunch (Dutch) for us and we can enjoy a refreshing drink at the late afternoon critique.

Learn the ancient art of carving woodblocks or the modern carving techniques for Lino (Linoleum) Blocks. Inspired by misty Pt. Reyes, join with beginners or experienced participants and we will print note cards from 4”x6” blocks. The art of carving takes practice and Joan will guide the class through this ancient art form with demos and individual attention. Bring art images for a design to carve or Joan will supply images to carve. Each participant will have experience with both the “easy” Lino Block carving and the more challenging woodblock carving.
