Artists often find their inspiration in the simple things, whether it’s a smile, a beautiful sunrise or playing a rousing game of hopscotch with a lemur. However, once you’ve captured your inspiration, you still the need the strength to flatten them onto a canvas. Buff up your artistic muscles and pay R99 for an art class with JM Art.
As a child, most people are taught all about the messy, finger-paint the walls and interpretive ketchup-blobs on the kitchen table side of creativity – of course, when you’re a child, covering everything in glue, paint and crayons is perfectly acceptable. A class with JM Arts gives you the chance to recapture that feeling and let your inner budding-artist out into the daylight, without needing to stock up on condiments. After honing his creativity to a fine point at the School for Creative Arts and Tshawne University of Technology, Jacques Muller of the aptly named JM Arts, received his National Diploma in fine arts and went on to become a full-time artist. A creator of pretty things and loudspeaker of artistic truth, Jacques is the perfect candidate for engendering your growth in a gamut of artistic abilities.
Under his guidance, you’ll be able to wield your pencil with pride and wade into the choppy and colourful world of fine art. After furnishing you with all the necessary supplies, he’ll lead you through some of the basics of fine art drawing – possibly even covering the difference between a rectangle and a parallelogram and whether to use a 2B or 6B pencil when you draw one.
The classes are perfect for helping students of all levels to explore their creative sides, and after just one class you’ll no doubt find yourself doodling everywhere, regardless of your age, skill-level or ability to draw the perfect stick-man.Circular Fact: An ancient Egyptian scroll on display in the Natural Museum of Art details the correct, algebraic method for drawing a perfect circle. Unfortunately, the scroll is written in hieroglyphs, so there are few artists who can harness the power of the perfect circle.
