Our April BirdFest workshop involved a full house for colored pencil studies of Atlanta Audubon's collection. The January workshop was an inspiring afternoon of rendering trees while listening to great literature informed by these shading giants. In 2017 and 2018, we have explored pen & ink, graphite, charcoal, colored pencil, and watercolor mediums.
All workshops are held from 1-4pm at Blue Heron Nature Preserve and all ability levels are welcome. In fact, we find a mix of levels to be inspiring! Some feedback:
"Great class! I'm a beginner and you gave me confidence and made art fun. Thank you so much!"
"Christy's workshops are great!"
"Thanks for such a meaningful afternoon. I liked the group and the subject matter."
"I wouldn't change a thing!"

Private Lessons in Art
This time is all yours...
Engage the senses as you take a sojourn in the field and studio. The foundation of all our classes, workshops and camps began with this professional, private instruction which has been developed and taught by Christy Knight over the last twenty years. Christy reveals the tools and techniques garnered from a lifetime of experience as an illustrator and artist, building technical skills and championing your unique voice.
Private lessons are professionally tailored to the specific needs of the Artist. Lesson time may include drawing exercises, painting techniques, botanical studies, portraiture, color theory, art history, all of the above or other. The lesson format establishes a routine much like one would for sports where there are warm up exercises, practice, new skills learned and a cool down routine.
Artists leave class confident, refreshed and inspired.
