Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

Learn the fundamentals of drawing. Emphasis will be on training the hand and eye to work together to draw what you see. Contour drawing, gesture, quick sketches and longer drawings will all be explained and practiced. In this class we will place equal importance on technique and exploration.

All skill levels are welcome. Includes model fee for 2 sessions (clothed model.) Get materials list online.
