  1. 4060: Life Drawing

    October 26, 2017, 9:15 AM - 12:15 PM @ Art Center

    Draw from the model and learn the methods of the masters. The first half of class will consist of short poses to seize the figure quickly and to capture the rhythmic action of the pose. The second half of the class will be a sustained pose carried on in the remaining classes. This gives students the opportunity to learn how to finish a drawing incorporating form, anatomy, beauty of line and “sculpting” the body from within. Teens are welcome to take the class with adult permission.

    October 26, 2017, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ Art Center

    This class covers the foundation of acrylic painting. Students will work from personal photographs to create a composition on stretched canvas.

Acrylic paints are a highly effective medium for beginners to learn to paint successfully. They may be applied in thin layers like watercolor, or in thick, opaque layers like oil paint. Acrylics dry quickly and may be diluted with water for simple, odorless clean-up, making them accessible to everyone.
