What's Included

This quick-draw pocket sketching technique allows anyone to “journal” wherever they are using only a 4 x 6 art pad, a water soluble pen, a small paint set, a brush and a film canister of water. Perfect for hiking, sitting in a café or standing in line — take it anywhere, whip it out in a minute, and preserve a memory in 25 minutes or less. It’s more about capturing the “feel” of a place rather than taking a camera image. This workshop is ideal for beginners who want to fearlessly paint in public, and for experienced artists who want minimal equipment, speed and no clean-up. Kath says, "As an artist, I enjoy capturing the moment. There is always a reason to paint something that catches the eye and the mind. As an instructor I delight in teaching my easy, totally portable, no-clean-up technique to beginners and professionals alike. Motto: Learn enough to play for a lifetime! There's nothing like the excitement of helping people learn a new art skill they love. For more information visit

About This Organizer

The Art Center is a community arts organization dedicated to improving quality of life by promoting the enjoyment and understanding of the visual arts and related arts through studio art instruction, educational programs for children and adults, exhibitions and the acquisition, care and display of a permanent art collection.


Inspiring educational classes and a commitment to providing access to art for all people have been at the heart of The Art Center's mission since for over 60 years. "Participatory," "experiential," and "artist-driven" are words that describe the variety of programming from traditional to contemporary offered year round. Everyone can take the creative plunge through educational activities that are free and open to the public or provided at low tuition rates thanks to generous donors and sponsors. You can even apply for one of our need-based scholarship. Everyone should be a part of this vibrant creative community, and now there is no reason not to pick up a brush, a dirty piece of charcoal or even throw a bowl on the potter's wheel. Welcome to The Art Center, where creativity is life altering.

There is a class request list if you do not find what you, your child or teen are looking for. The Art Center holds five class sessions every year in painting, drawing, bookmaking, photography, glass and much more. Our programs seek to inspire individuals of all ages to explore, develop and celebrate their creativity.
