“Draw what you see, not what you know!” This course will offer techniques and guidance to hone your drawing skills. We will be working entirely from life: learning to see and observe. Each class we will spend time with a different subject matter- the still life, plein air, and finally, the figure. The outcome will be a collection of drawings that demonstrate a growing understanding of observational drawing.

Students in this course may produce much desired work for college admissions portfolios
