Drawing

Mondays, September 14 – October 19
4 pm – 6 pm (EDT)
(Six Weeks)
$120

Instructor: Claudia Selene
Every type visual art, from oil painting to architecture, begins with drawing. Your drawing abilities will determine the ease and skill with which you express yourself in any medium.

Starting with the most basic principles, each exercise in this class is designed to build and strengthen your skills so that you can more accurately and sensitively draw what you are looking at. During this session we will spend two weeks on each drawing, to allow students to master every stage, from basic shapes to refining a full value drawing.

This class may be repeated to strengthen and refine your skills. We practice not in order to be able to do a thing, but in order to do it easily and beautifully.
