Portrait and Life Drawing

Aug 17 -21 2020 1pm – 4pm
Ages 14 – 18

Instructor: Lief Larson

Portrait and Life Drawing are ironically important topics to focus on if you’re interested in drawing or creating art. Both are hinged on observation and technical skill. In this class, we will learn about the art of observation as it relates to drawing and life. We will apply observation to what we will learn about technical skills and handling drawing materials. We will have a live (clothed) model and several still life set ups to aid the class while we learn about how to translate observation into an image on a surface. All supplies included.
