Our 2015-16 schedule will have a new class for adult artists who want to hone their drawing skills.  Fundamental Drawing will meet once per week and will focus on skill development, exercises, and instruction.   


And the best news, it's completely FREE.

Although, these are considered advanced classes, the desire to learn and grow is more important than the current skill level.  You can be a beginner in these classes and be JUST fine!

Drawing Fundamental class will operate on a 12-week curriculum.  We will repeat the lessons and drills every 12 weeks.  (Repetition is a wonderful thing.)

Each class is 60 minutes long; following each class, the studio is open for another 60 minutes for practice and additional feedback.  The second hour is completely optional.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS CLASSES:
  • Enrolled students (12 and up) who want extra instruction and focus on skill development
  • Adults who have ALWAYS wanted to learn how to draw and paint
  • High School students who are considering an art degree and need to create a portfolio demonstrating skills
The emphasis will be on drawing as REAL as possible--not because realistic drawing is better than abstract, but because realistic drawings demonstrate that we have command of our skill!

Our class meets four times per month (any "fifth days" will be taken as a day off).  After these 12 lessons have been taught, we will cycle back through them.  Artists may join at the beginning of any month, regardless of whether we are in Week 1, 5, or 9.
