Please note this class is now full, and we are not accepting any more registrations. 

In this drawing class students will be exposed to the importance of observation in drawing still life, landscape and figure. Students will practice depicting the shape of objects, their proportion, perspective, the use of "light and dark" in modeling subjects, and ultimately capturing "the gesture of life" for each subject. 

This class will be useful for the beginner and will serve as a refresher for more advanced students to get back into the joy of drawing.

He is an award -winning artist and writer who has served as president of several non-profit organizations including the Washington, D.C.
