April 7th – May 12th
six weeks of class
1 PM – 3 PM
Academic life drawing is an invaluable skill for any artist. Whether drawing from the mind or from life, an artist needs to learn to accurately depict what they see. This class is designed to walk students through that process and teach technical methods useful for both beginning and more experienced artists. We will be working from a live draped model during class.
Please bring a sketchpad(9″x 12″ or larger), pencils, kneaded rubber erasers, and rulers
