Overview

Nickel Plate Arts invites you to hone your drawing skills and develop new ones! This year, we are developing new classes, as well as offering old favorites! Our popular “Monday Night Drawing Class” for adult students (age 15+) is a great start for all skill levels. “Drawing Class: Focus on Shading” is a great opportunity for both beginner and intermediate students to practice and develop their shading skills. We will add new and different drawing classes as they develop!

Nickel Plate Arts is excited to present Jeanette Pomeroy Parssi as our new Monday Night Drawing Class instructor starting in January!

Our popular 10-week drawing class is available to adult artists at all skill levels, basic to advanced. This is a great class for beginners and a relaxed opportunity for more experienced artists! Instructor Jeannette Pomeroy Parssi found her path in 1994 when she left the corporate world to pursue art. She has studied with renowned artists Graham Nickson, Dean of the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture; and Miraslov Antic, an instructor at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She also has traveled extensively to many locales in Europe to hone her craft, sometimes alone and other times part of a group, but always with the goal of becoming a better artist. Jeannette is truly passionate about art and looks forward to teaching participants skills and techniques of artistic expression through drawing.

Nickel Plate Arts will provide basic materials, but participants may also bring their own supplies. Students must be 15 and older.

This ongoing class will be offered during subsequent sessions in 2020.
