What did you think of 'Pan Am'?

What did you think of 'Pan Am'?

 

Passion, jealousy and espionage... They do it all – and they do it at 30,000 feet. The style of the 1960s, the energy and excitement of the Jet Age and a drama full of sexy entanglements deliciously mesh in this thrilling and highly-original new series.

Joan F. Tasca’s Drawing and Painting Courses at Dow Museum

Enjoy learning to Paint and Draw in the inspiring atmosphere of the Dow Museum of Historic Houses.  Joan holds a B.F.A. with a concentration in painting from the University of Delaware and received Art Education Certification from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and had attended youth art programs at Moore College of Art and Philadelphia Museum College of Art.  Her work is in private collections, and has won awards.  Her courses all focus on learning to “see” as an artist and encourage working from actual subjects, whether students explore objective (realism) or non-objective (abstraction, etc.) work. Beginners learn basics while intermediate/advanced focus on personal style and expressing an idea or concept.  You may want to paint or draw or both, and try realism or lean toward abstraction or non-representational art.  It is wise to look at genre in art history for realism, such as landscape, portraiture, still-life, history and genre scenes.  If you are exploring non-representational art, you should research the appropriate art history period, with instructor help.   See Joan’s bio at www.online-arts.net.
