Welcome To Jody Ball Art

Hello Hollyhocks!

Hello Summer!

My summer 2017 classes are posted in the menu! There is a beginning drawing class for youth and adults called Drawing Skills Drills, also a pastel and acrylic class for all ages. Young people have a chance to study the life and works of Vincent van Gogh!

As always, I have paint parties going on throughout the year, usually on Friday nights but if you have a group and a different time in mind please ask! They are always a fun time for all. Check out the details under the “Paint Parties” tab.

All class sizes are limited, please sign up early to insure your spot.

Hollyhocks are my favorite flower, I used to grow them in my garden. As you can see above, they are so bright, cheerful and old fashioned! They come in many colors and reseed themselves. I have painted Hollyhocks so many times, this particular pastel painting is done on toned Mi-Teintes pastel paper. It is no longer available but I just might have to grow more Hollyhocks and start all over again!

 This website is dedicated to the memory of my parents Joe and Marcia Manning who believed in my artistic capabilities even as a young child. During that time they allowed me to take art classes from a prominent artist and teacher in my hometown. I still remember that first lesson in her front yard on a sunny day …”shadows”… and I teach those same important concepts I was taught in my first “real art class”, even now.
