IN PERSON: Fall Forms - Dark, Light, and Drop Shadows on Nature Objects

9:00AM-12:00PM PT

Instructor:  Alina Nuebel

Nature offers beauty at every time of year, and autumn is no different. Lengthening shadows hail the oncoming cool rainy-season, and fall colors — the reds, browns, greys, and yellows — make the perfect excuse to bring out the earth tones in your color palette. Join Fall Forms for a beginner-friendly, intermediate-engaging, dry media drawing class focused on value and tonal studies of autumnal nature objects.  Tonal and value studies done in charcoal or conte crayon can be beautiful art objects in their own right, as well as important preliminary work in preparation for paintings.

Learn skills to design compositions, draw three-dimensional forms, and anchor your subjects in space with the use of drop shadows as we consider both the bounty and stark beauty of the season.

Alina Nuebel


Alina Nuebel has been painting for over fifteen years across a range of media, and has been making art since the first time someone left a box crayons unattended (with a bit of a detour through higher education to study ecology). Alina’s art tends to be a playful tour though the local Sonoma County landscape –though not always at the scale that people expect! These days, most of Alina’s paintings and drawings are strongly influenced by natural history illustration and a general fascination with plants, insects, ecology, and the tiny organisms that are easily overlooked.
