Class Schedule May-June 2018

Basic Drawing-Monday 3:30-5:30p.m.

This class explores ways of seeing through right brain exercises. Drawing with pencil, pen, and charcoal, students create drawings of people, objects, and landscape. Working with proportion, line, light, and composition, students experience what it means to see like an artist.

Teen Painting- Monday 6:00-8:00

Students paint in a variety of styles influenced by the history of classical art. Using masterworks, still life, landscape, and portrait as subjects, students gain an understanding of brushwork, composition, tonal structure, and color mixing.

Portrait Drawing -Wednesday 4:00-6:00

Analyzing the human face is key to drawing it. By learning how to use proportional measuring, light and shadow mapping, gridding, and contour exercises, students gain tools to perceive and draw portraits. 

Figure Drawing Wednesday 7:00-9:00

Drawing the human figure requires curiosity to see in new ways.  More important than knowledge of anatomy is understanding the many ways to analyze proportion, shape, light, and structure while being introduced to the expressive possibilities in graphite, charcoal, and more. This classes uses masterwork studies to support the lessons offered in sessions with live models.
