Which medium are you interested in mastering? Explore ideas of movement/gesture, abstract shape, light, and the structural organization of the figure/still life. Initially, we will work in the tradtitional drawing mediums of charcoal r pencil. As we progress, students will have the option of working in the drawing or painting medium of their choice. Students of all abilities who are comfortable with making and learning from mistakes, at ease with being guided as well as working independently are welcome.
