Intermediate Drawing (not a beginner drawing course)

This will be taught like a workshop; in a progressive way and you will need to do all classes to get the most benefit from it.

You will learn what it takes to draw and plan a Painting or a finished Drawing.

Drawing is the basis for all artistic endeavors. If you have a strong, well designed drawing, 

you have an excellent chance of having a successful Painting.

 

We will be meeting on Tues. 1-4 for 7 weeks; on the following dates 7/13, 7/20, 8/3, 8/10, 8/17, 8/24, 8/31
