Drawing Workshop

This is a day-long session on developing and improving your drawing skills. We will cover the topics of shading and values, perspective and picture planning, as well as small vignettes of interesting objects and scenes. A sketchbook pencil and eraser are all you will need.

10 am – 3:00 pm Friday March 3, 2017

During the winter season weather is always a concern. My general rule is if the schools are cancelled then classes are cancelled as well. Some of you travel from a distance and I want everyone to be safe. Cancelled classes will be added at the end of the session.
