Upcoming Workshops: Times and Dates TBA

Learn by copying: Georgia O’Keeffe’s Poppies
You’ll learn Meryl Ann’s valuable methods as you paint a copy of Oriental Poppies, 18” x 24.”
The initial underpainting is done in acrylics in order to create depth of color, the top painting is done in oils for ease in blending. Copying from the Old Masters is one of the most basic traditional learning methods – in fact, the reason art museums were founded was in order to provide great works for art students to copy!


Elements of Art: Keys of Color

Students receive a pdf of Meryl Ann’s  30-page workbook, Elements of Art: Keys of Color, and during workshop times, will complete the color charts that accompany the workbook. Students go at their own pace. Supplies: a set of gouache (not acrylic gouache) and brushes.

Drawing Tips and Secrets

Demos and hands on activities to train you eye and hand, and a peek into some of the secrets the Masters used for accuracy in drawing.

Brooklyn Art Library Sketchbook Project

The Brooklyn Art Library is the world’s largest collection of artist sketchbooks! Every participant uses the same 5×7” blank custom sketchbook, with approximately 16 two-page spreads (you can adjust the number of pages) , to engage in creative storytelling within a global community. Students in this class will work on their own personalized art sketchbook with technical and creative assistance from the instructor and inspiration from the other students in class. Sketchbooks can include drawn and or painted images, words, poetry, photos, collage, and more. Classes will meet several times and students have 3-4 months to complete their art sketchbook. This is an exciting way to gain skills in art journaling, share your message with the world, and add an important project to your art resume.

The Brooklyn Art Library hosts a physical library space that is free and open to the public, and has a digital library accessible worldwide, making the collection accessible to people of all ages and skill levels through robust education programming. For more info and to see examples of sketchbooks in their digital library:  A video of instructor, Meryl Ann’s first Brooklyn Art Library Sketchbook is forthcoming. To explore thematic sketchbooks:
