Tuition: $90 nonmembers, $81 members

Appropriate for Intermediate Adults    Enrollment Code B

Interested in drawing people but don’t know where to start? Three instructors from the Friday portrait coop will team up to help launch you into drawing clothed models. You’ll learn basic proportions, how to capture gesture in a short pose, working with lighting, and more. During the 3rd session, Virgil will introduce tonal washes. Each instructor will demonstrate so you can see their unique styles and approaches at work. Within this frame work, students will find their own ways into the joy of drawing people.

Materials: Large pad of inexpensive paper (newsprint is good); pencils, and Conte’ crayon; erasers; pencil sharpener. For toned washes (Oct. 17), bring watercolor (water-soluble) markers, crayons, and/or pencils, watercolor brush (size 6 or 8 round), cup for water, paper towels, and Canson’s mixed media paper.  There will be an $8 per class session model fee payable to the instructor.
