Program Type


Come enjoy lessons on recreating still life forms through drawing techniques in a relaxed and approachable environment. Using skills in observation, perspective and how we perceive light as it interacts with our physical world, explore what it takes to realistically mimic a view of found objects with a deepened understanding of “seeing” plus the application of key drawing principles using a variety of materials. We will use these classic principles to create a colorful and nontraditional still life you will be excited to take home. This program welcomes all skill levels. 

This three-week class will meet on Sundays: October 15, 22, 29.
