Summer Fridays with Cate

This summer Cate Robbins, award winning professional artist and teacher will set up shop at the Arthouse in McKinney on Fridays (in addition to her on-going Saturday classes) for drop-in drawing and painting classes. These days will be times for students 11 years old to adult to work on advancing their technical skills in drawing (graphite, charcoal, colored pencil, pastels), painting (acrylic, oil, watercolor), and composition (ways to organize dynamic art). Cate will be in the house from 9 til 2. Students may come at any time and pay $10 for each hour in the studio. Some supplies are available but students will need to come prepared to work on their own projects with Cate’s “coaching” help.
