WAVERLY — Art with Alex will return to the Waverly Community House, 1115 N Abington Road, for six weeks, beginning Thursday, Jan. 21 .

For children ages 6and older, Foundation Drawing and Painting is a class that explores the fundamental elements of art, such as color, form, shape, value and texture. Children will learn how to draw and paint from a still life, gesture poses and more experimental games and projects aimed to hone and fine tune any skill level. The ultimate goal of this class will be to train each student’s eye to draw and paint what they see rather than what they know or think they should see, ultimately bridging the gap between three dimensional objects and two dimensional renderings.

Foundation Drawing and Painting is held from 4 to 5 p.m. in the After School Room (Level 1). The fee for the class is $60, which includes materials.

Alex MacNamara is a ceramic artist with extensive training in printmaking and sculpture. She has a BFA from the School of Visual Arts as well as a Master’s degree in Art Business from the Sotheby’s Institute of Art. She has shown and sold her ceramic sculptures and vessels professionally in New York City and Pennsylvania. Alex is an artist in residence for NEUI Chapter 19.
