Intro to Drawing and Observation

MArch 20th-MAy 22

Wednesdays 6:00-8:00 Pm

With Conner choi

What makes art appealing? Why do we see things the way we do? This course is as much about the science and feeling of seeing as it is about applying that knowledge to paper! In this class you will be introduced to basic drawing concepts week by week using great historical artists and still lives in the studio as references. Each week will start with a discussion and demonstration about that week’s concept, and the rest of the class time will be used for drawing and critique. The first 8 weeks we’ll be drawing from various casts, still life setups, and references in studio, and the last 2 weeks will be with a live portrait model.

Class space is limited to 8, Please contact us below to sign up:
