Level: Beginner to Advanced
Sept 7 - Oct 19, 2017
6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Instructor: Eddie Nino
Price includes live model fee.
This class is designed for the beginner to advanced student. Its purpose is to give the student the basic building blocks needed to create unique, true to life drawings and paintings. Working primarily from a live model and still life set ups, students will be introduced to important concepts allowing them to draw and paint accurately without anxiety or confusion. A series of exercises, frequent mini-lectures, and subject/approach focused sessions will solidify the student’s inner voice and overall knowledge of art. Participants will be exposed to both traditional and modern concepts critical to a thorough understanding of the craft. The skills taught in this class will enhance the student’s confidence to express and create in their own personal style.
