Fine Art and Instruction by Lisa Underwood

Art Classes at A-B Tech

Graphite Illustration. This piece is a tribute to my parents. It depicts my Mother's tooled leather purse and one of my Father's suit handkerchiefs.

Each year I teach a variety of classes at A-B Tech.


Beginning Drawing and Intermediate Drawing

We cover a lot of great material in both courses. Sharing my drawing technique knowledge is one of my greatest teaching passions. Drawing provides so many personal benefits and it's the foundation of all art forms. This is an ongoing course with 5-week sessions. See below for the latest schedule.

Studio Painting: Personal Style

This studio class is a great place to develop your point of view with other painters using the medium of your choice. Working from photographs or still-life, you will be given one-on-one critiques each week. Please plan to bring supplies to the first class. This is an ongoing course with 5-week sessions. See below for the latest schedule.

Creative Mixed Media and Acrylics

Explore collage techniques with acrylic paint, glazes, pastes and mediums to produce fascinating works of art. A variety of artistic processes will be introduced. This is a fun class where you can expound on your creative methods. Bring glue, brushes and assorted papers to first class.
