Watercolor, Charcoal, Drawing & Acrylic Painting Classes
with E.J. Gold


E.J. Gold offers Watercolor, Charcoal, Drawing & Acrylic Painting Classes Master Artist E.J. Gold is offering watercolor, drawing, charcoal and acrylic painting classes in Grass Valley, California, at Ben Franklin Crafts. The two-hour classes are open to all skill levels and are small, allowing for much personal attention and instruction.

This just in, from Neville Throckmorton, CEO of FireCode, Inc., Sacramento, CA: "Hi, I wanted you guys to know how excited I am about the ... drawing workshop. I had a great breakthrough after using E.J.'s Draw Good Now workbook for only a few days. I suddenly was able to see the outline of an image in the doodling and the figure came to life as I gave it volume by creating the various planes with shading as we were shown. I've never been able to draw at all. Last night I discovered how similar drawing is to sculpting as I "carved into" the paper with my pencil, creating a three dimensional relief. This is one of the most powerful exercises I've seen. Thanks E.J.!"

"This was a fantastic opportunity to work under unique conditions created for us by E.J. Would not have missed it for anything."
