Coming in Fall, 2023
Classical Drawing and Painting, Thursdays from 2-5:40, Mays Landing Campus

Looking to improve your painting and drawing? Coming up in the fall semester I will be teaching Classical Painting and Drawing. The prerequisite is Fundamental Drawing, an equivalent, or permission of the instructor. Oil paints and solvents will be supplied for classroom exercises as well as some supports. This class is open to all adult learners and our own Atlantic Cape students but if you did not take Fundamental Drawing please email me at and request permission and provide a sampling of your work. The course is 15- weeks (we are closed on Thursday, Thanksgiving) and we dive deep into classical drawing methods of the still-life, landscape, and figure including life drawing and painting. NO BOOK – videos and articles will be provided as previewing assignments before each session. SAGE students are welcome. I recommend you obtain your SAGE (Senior Adults Gaining Enrichment) cards from Atlantic Cape Community College’s SAGE liason before the single day of registration. Please email me if you have any questions.

Watch this page for the Zoom recording of this event from summer 2022.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Please spread the word about our next Voices and Votes event: Art and the American Revolution (see attached flyer). In this presentation, Dr. Augustine Nigro will show how both the British and the colonists used art as a propaganda tool during the war for independence. Professor Knowles-Harrigan will speak about the process and techniques used to make the featured works of art and discuss the artists’ role in the Colonial era. My esteemed co-presenter’s biography is below and you can read my bio at this link:!  

This event will take place through Zoom Webinar, June 13 at 5:30 PM. All are welcome! If you wish any details about the community exhibition please email me at
