Creating Playful Landscapes Through Texture, Color and Curiosity with Claudia Solis
Friday, July 22, 5:00pm - 6:30pm PST
Grab some paper or a sketchbook and something to draw with! We will hang out and look at some pretty scenery, work on some timed drawings to loosen us up, and then move onto a larger drawing or painting. This is often a process that I use to loosen up and quiet that internal voice that is negative and wants everything to be perfect. The larger landscape drawing or painting at the end of our session will be created by using our work as reference, the colors and textures we explored, and our imagination.
Join zoom 15 minutes early (4:45pm) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 5:05pm PST so that everyone has plenty of time to join!

Claudia Solis is a San Francisco based Illustrator and Designer. Her work is an exploration of her curiosity through materials, feelings, textures, and observations. She uses her curiosity to create work that is more aligned with her passion for nature, the strange, and the unusual. When Claudia is not drawing or painting, she can be found cruising around the coast in her 62 Chevy Nova or at home being cozy with her dog, Chevy.
