Each class students will choose a picture to learn the layered colors technique through a variety of strokes that result in a composition with rich hues, shadows and highlights.  The goal is to complete a unique project in each 3 hour session.

We will start with a basic project and the instructor will recommend progressively more challenging projects for each student. It is recommended to attend all 7 sessions but students can attend one session or more if they like or choose to join at any point.  This program is beginner friendly and fun.

This class explores figure drawing with a focus on gesture, form, and design. Line and action, figure construction, shape, and the description of form are addressed to convey the figure in a dynamic, expressive, and authoritative way. Students will draw from the live model, but the concepts covered work equally well to drawing from reference or imagination.

Classes are structured in blocks of 4 sessions designed to build progressively on each other. Each session starts with an overview of the process followed by a demonstration diving deeper into a particular aspect of figure drawing. Each week can also work as stand-alone units for those who would prefer to drop-in.
