Karen Rosasco's Critique Sessions! 

May 18, June 8 

CCV Critique ( Composition, Color and Value)

Ever wonder what your art needs to be finished, be successful, to win awards or appeal to buyers? Join the Shenandoah Valley Art Center's new monthly critique class led by nationally recognized instructor Karen Rosasco. Starting January 12th from 1-3 PM or longer if needed, the critique will broaden your horizons, fine tune your design skills and help you to create a masterpiece every time. Bring one or two finished pieces or works in progress along with a sketchbook ( approximately 9 x 12 inches) pencil, eraser, and Sharpie pen. The class will meet May 18, and June 8 and cost $20 per session payable when you attend. Call SVAC to register or just show up at the art center in Waynesboro at the designated time.

After critiquing all the participant's work, Karen will lead a short design exercise which will strengthen your knowledge of the elements of art and principles of design with a focus on composition, color choices and value patterns. Karen has taught art to children and adults for over 50 years including 31 years in public schools including preparing high school art students portfolios for college acceptance, leading art trips and workshops on 6 continents plus teaching week long mixed-media and design workshops across the US and Canada. In 2007 Karen's entry in the American Watercolor Society's annual international show received the second place silver medal award. Her work is in many corporate collections including General Electric.


Tai Chi in the Art Gallery! 

Every Tuesday morning from 9am-10am in our Invitational Gallery, come discover the graceful art that is tai chi.  Gentle movements from time long ago, combined with breath, help to open the energy passages throughout the body, leading to overall improvement in body, mind, and spirit.  Each week we will add on to what we've learned in previous classes, and practice until participants are confident in their practice.

No special clothes needed. Comfortable clothing and athletic/flat shoes suggested.  

Instructor: Linda Revis, $10 per class, cash or check only.  All are welcome! 

Everything Linda teaches can be adapted for persons in a wheelchair or sitting in a folding chair.
