2017 Drawing Course

This class is designed to advance and enhance your knowledge, approach and skills related to the portrait.  We will be working from various reference sources such as live model and anatomy references.  This course will be geared toward creating completed works.

This course is not geared toward learning a new medium please choose mediums that you are familiar with.  Unfortunately we cannot allow the use of oil based mediums or mediums requiring the use of turpentine or solvents (oil pastels are fine).   I would encourage you to purchase quality drawing papers if you do not already own them.

The Focus:

  • Rendering light and shadow as related to form, spatial depth, composition and aesthetic
  • Time management
  • Achieving impact
  • Attaining likeness
