Drawing on Right Side of Brain Instruction at Chatham Senior Center

Local artist, Philla Barkhorn, will conduct a six-week art class based on Betty Edwards' bestselling book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. It will be held on Wednesdays from 10 am - 12, Sept 22- Oct 27 at the Senior Center of the Chathams. This course is designed for both the beginner and the seasoned artist who would like to learn to see things differently in order to draw more accurately.

Edwards' approach concentrates on learning the perception of edges, spaces, relationships, lights and shadows, and the whole or gestalt. Classes will include lecture and drawing time each week, focusing on new skills and exercises from the Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Workbook. Still life as well as portraiture will be covered.

Ms Barkhorn is on the board of the Art League of the Chathams and has developed a successful workshop series as well as weekly portrait modeling sessions. She recently completed a series of portraiture workshops at the Senior Center. Philla paints privately commissioned portraits in pastel. She was named "Artist of the Month" by the Art League of the Chathams and her work can be seen on display at the Chatham Township Municipal Building. She studied with some of New Jersey's finest portrait artists, such as Rhoda Yanow, Alex Piccirillo, and Enrique Flores-Galbis.

Please contact the Senior Center or Philla at pbarkhorn@verizon.net for a materials list. It is helpful to read the book as you take the class. If you do not wish to purchase it please consider borrowing it from the library. The cost for 6 classes is $40 for seniors or $50 for those under age 60. The class is open to residents of Chatham and surrounding areas. Please contact the Senior Center at (973)635-4565 for further information and registration.

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...
