Drawing with Confidence
Designed for students who already have a grasp of basic drawing techniques, this class takes you deeper into form, structure, and expression while keeping at your pace. Students will be learning key concepts such as basic figure drawing, detailed rendering, intermediate perspective, use of color, and combining materials. Each class features a directed exercise designed to be used for more complex subject matter. This class is intended for those who are looking to take their drawing to their next level. We will draw from the nude model during the last four classes.
This is an in-person class which will take place onsite at Fleisher. Please review our COVID-19 community safety policies for current guidelines.
