Each week we will go over tips and tricks to learn how to draw from life. Learning to draw from life is actually about learning to really see. We’ll go over a variety of approaches to starting and completing a drawing as well explore different drawing medium. Some weeks may be focused on meticulous perspective, while other weeks may be all about expressive gestural mark making. Some weeks we’ll play with color, and other weeks we’ll get messy using charcoal. During the warmer months, if the weather is appropriate, we may go outside to draw.

Instructor: Kia Neill

Participants must be 15 or older to participate. The cost of the class includes materials and use of tools. Non-members: $30 Members: $23
