Knitting 101

WEDNESDAY EVENING ART GATHERINGS: WAG with us!    Each Session only $20,  begins at 5:30, ends at 7:00pm

We are excited to offer a variety of Art Instructional classes from 5:30 to 7 pm on the 2nd and 3rd Wednesday of each month.  Real Instruction at a real Value

Since September of 2018 we have created, pencil drawings with an emphasis on Perspective, Still Life and Landscape drawings.  We have created a painted slate, two 6X6 collages, one a snow scene, the other a flower by the students choice.  We have dove into knitting the first textile class.  Our instructors are our Resident Artists, Staff, and Members of the Arts Depot.  Classes are being scheduled on an ongoing basis.  Check here to see what is coming up or   Call 276-628-9091.  Please also  pre-register to hold your spot.

JANUARY 9

Knitting                                         INSTRUCTOR: Erin Oneisom

Knitting 101:  You will learn cast on, cast off, knit stitch and pearl stitch. All knitting is a combination/variation on these 4 stitches.  For this first class you will need a pair of knitting needles (recommend sizes 8,9, or 10-try holding the different sizes for comfort). and a skein of yarn (recommend Lion Brand since it is inexpensive, easy to work with, and seems to last forever.  I DO NOT recommend Red Heart for this beginning work.)  Materials can be found at Wal-Mart, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc.

Bring your acrylic paints, heavy paper, an assortment of flat, bright and round brushes – really only 1 or two of each, learn how to pick up paint to paint a petal with highlight and shading in one stroke.  We will use a heavy drawing paper to practice on.  Subject will be Spring Shasta Daisies, any  daisy structured flower really.  We can then take this approach to other flower shapes which will be explained along with leaf painting.
