Note regarding class supplies: Supplies will
be discussed in class. Please bring whatever related materials you may already have to the first
class meeting. Students are expected to provide
their own materials unless otherwise noted below.
Paint the human figure under the brilliant
sunlight. Like the Impressionists who were
obsessed with the vibrancy of natural
light, we will explore all the vibrant color
variations that only come from painting
outside. Learn about warm and cool
temperature shifts and how light influences color. We will learn the concepts of
Complementary Color, Analogous Color,
Simultaneous Contrast, Local Color, Value
Relationships, and the effects of Sunlight.
Acrylic paint, especially ‘Open Acrylics’,
watercolor, pastels, various pencils, and
charcoal are all welcome at this class.
Please, no oil paints or solvents. Bring
whatever you may already have to the first
class.

Abstract Painting
“In a successful painting everything is integral…all the parts belong to the whole. If you
remove an aspect or element you are removing
its wholeness.” Richard Diebenkorn
This course is designed for students of all
experience levels who wish to strengthen
their skills in abstract painting in any
medium. Through lectures, demonstrations, discussions, critiques, and in class
painting, we will deconstruct modern and
contemporary themes as students work to
develop a unique voice in their paintings.
Topics include: materials, color theory,
composition, depth, form, movement, and
paint application.
Bring paper and a pen or pencil to the
first class. Supplies will be discussed in
class. New students welcome.

Watercolor Basics
and Beyond
Drawing In Color And
Mixed Media Drawing
A comprehensive class welcoming all skill
levels. For those just starting out, the basics will be covered: color mixing, washes,
wet-dry approaches — just handling the
paint itself! More advanced students are
welcome to bring in their own projects or
to consult with the instructor for direction.
We will work from studio still life and
landscape. All subject matter welcome,
including abstraction.
See Note regarding materials under Art
heading above. Bring whatever watercolor
supplies you may have to the first class.
For beginners and experienced artists, this
class combines the discipline of drawing
with the experimental mixing of materials.
Use a variety of media to create powerful
and colorful images! Develop an eye for
composition, color, and perspective in a
grouping of diverse elements. Learn how
to apply light and shade, texture, and scale
through juxtaposition. Each week we will
begin with a still life and see where it takes
us.
This class will help you build a strong
portfolio. It is also an excellent class for
those who have never painted or drawn
before!
Individual instruction will be given
as time allows. Please bring a sheet of
22”x30” cold press watercolor paper, a large

The Flow of Watercolor: An
Emotional Interpretation
of the Landscape
The outdoors are so beautiful and stimulating. Sometimes we don’t know where
to start and what subject to choose. Learn
to connect to your feelings about a scene
through color, composition, shape, line,
and other design elements and principles.
Depart from realism, either subtly or more
dramatically, to let your emotion toward
the scene dominate your expression. Move
your painting in a new, exciting direction
as you explore interpreting nature’s beauty
in your own unique, compelling style.
We will paint outdoors at least three
of the six sessions. All levels welcome.
Continuing students may develop their
own projects and work independently.
Individual attention will be given to all
students.

Post Impressionism: What
Does it Mean?
Study the Paintings of Paul Cezanne,
Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, Paul Gauguin,
Vincent Van Gogh, and Toulouse-Lautrec.
While these artists laid the groundwork
for a modern art based on concepts, emotions, and process rather than on direct
visual response to reality, they also point
to vastly diverse directions the art of the
20th century would take. Seurat’s pointillism influenced Fauvism, while Cezanne’s
experiments with space helped inspire
Cubism. In contrast to Seurat, Signac and
Cezanne’s almost scientific approach,
the introspective paintings of Van Gogh
and Gauguin led the way to Symbolism
and Expressionism. Henri de ToulouseLautrec’s posters are the very essence of
Art Nouveau.

Francisco State University for ten years

how we will behave, and what we will do
with our work and leisure time. Place is so
important in our lives that in many films it
becomes one of the characters. Three films

How to Replace Your Lawn
If maintaining your lawn has gotten to be
too much—too much time, too much mowing, too much water, fertilizer, pesticides,
and herbicides, or just plain too much
bother—then you’ll want to take this class.
Learn to use alternative grasses and
grasslike plants to create beautiful ‘lawns’
that are low care and water-conserving.
In this one-day class, you will be
guided, step-by-step, through the entire
lawn-replacement process: from initial
considerations of cost and difficulty,
through selecting the right plants for your
site, to soil preparation and planting, and
finally, to the required maintenance.

new The Golden Age of
San Francisco Rock: The
Summer of Love
In the mid-to-late 1960s, the San Francisco
Bay Area exploded with psychedelic rock
that captured the imagination of the world,
creating legendary music that endures and
influences popular culture to this day.
The roots and heyday of the San
Francisco Sound will be explored in depth
via both common and rare audio recordings by greats like Jefferson Airplane, the
Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and Santana.
We’ll also investigate how the Bay Area’s
unique counterculture, promoters such as
Bill Graham, and venues like the Fillmore
created a scene in which experimental and
idiosyncratic rock music could flower. The
course will also detail its roots in folk-rock;
the integration of jazz, ethnic, blues, and
avant-garde influences into psychedelic
rock; and how San Francisco rock continued to evolve in the 1970s, into funk, punk,
and beyond.

Transformational
Feldenkrais Movements
Learn how The Feldenkrais Method™ can
help you improve your functioning, balance, flexibility, coordination, posture, and
sense of well-being. These lessons increase
the capacity for easier and more effective
movement in everyday activities. We will
cover:
A New Way to Exercise
for Pain Relief and
Physical Repair
Come to a friendly exercise class that
welcomes your pace and problems. The
original exercises used in class bring pain
relief and develop new strength and flexibility without irritation or strain. The floor
exercises are done from a fully supported
position of healing comfort that you learn
to make with the wedges and pillows in
class. This exercise position gives even
long-standing, complicated, and chronic
problems the expanded and strainfree
movements of pain relief and physical
repair.
We make sounds, jiggle, shake, and
yawn. Leg exercises build protective
flexibility up and down the spine while
hamstrings lengthen and hips and thighs
tone. Breathing muscle exercises flatten
the belly, improve posture, change scoliosis, and give your lymph nodes and vessels
the expanding, contracting, and relaxing
motions of immune enhancement.

Yoga and Meditation
Introduction to Pilates
In this hatha yoga class, the regular
practice of asanas will build to encompass
a rich transition of seated, supine, prone,
standing, twisted, inverted, and balancing
postures -- moving through all the body’s
planes of motion and eventuating with
a practice that flows and grows. We will
include some yoga nidra sessions which
will support deep and easy sleep.
Appropriate for new and returning
students. Modifications will be given to
support beginner to advanced practitioners. Class is designed to gradually
increase your strength and flexibility,
allowing a deeper exploration of inward
reflection, concentration, meditation,
and relaxation, and an awakening of our
energetic centers.
Please arrive with an empty stomach.
Please bring a yoga mat and water, also any
yoga props, such as blanket, blocks, straps
and/or bolster.
Puni Elston has been dedicated to
fitness for 20 plus years and has studied/
practiced yoga and Pilates for 18 years and
taught for 11 years.
This popular mind/body exercise conditioning program was developed by Joseph
Pilates. We will focus on deep breathing
while strengthening the core muscles of
the trunk of the body, allowing the limbs to
move more freely and in proper alignment.
Pilates tones muscles, creates self-body
awareness, promotes focused movement,
increases flexibility and control, and improves posture. Learning to move through
Pilates training allows for better function
and control of muscles for sports and is
now practiced by many athletes, dancers,
and office workers, not only to increase
performance, but also to rehabilitate the
body after injury.
Please bring your own mat to classes at

critiques in a fun, supportive atmosphere.
The class is open to writers of all ages

The Poetic Pilgrimage:
Writing Poetry as
Spiritual Practice
As we rush through our days, the urge
to root ourselves in something deep and
sustaining intensifies. The writing of
poetry not only serves this urge, but has
many similarities to traditional spiritual
paths: focus on presence, development
of compassion and detachment, sincere
truth-telling, surrender to something
beyond ourselves. In this intensive class
we will use poems and sutras from various
traditions to lead us into such topics as:
The Inner Ear, Luminosity, Rhythm (&
Blues), and The Art of Being Surprised by
Our Own Poems. And we will read and
write poems to our hearts’ content ... every
day of the week.

7, we’ll shine the light on Meditation and

of meditation and the experiential roots
of speech, then write from an expanded
sense of language. Our meditations will
include movement and sound-based techniques as well as a very special labyrinth
walk. On July 14, bring three or more
poems you’d like to The Illustrated Poem.
Together we will create one greeting card,
a broadside, and a small chapbook. On July

on breaking the sound barrier with our

that long to be spoken, and practice various techniques to help us deliver them in
fullness. We will compose at least one new
poem, but please bring more to work with.
