In these progressively oriented Saturday Art Lessons, the fine art objective is to develop drawing and seeing skills in the serious young artist. The Fall/ Winter Session will focus on form drawing and getting started (“the art of the start”). These exercises are an essential step in the building of skill sets for the young aspiring artist. These are done in charcoal of simple still life arrangements with a single light source. The student is required to have mastery of the fundamental drawing skill before moving on to the Intermediate Level.
[There is a $30 fee for all supplies needed for the remaining 3 sessions, paid directly to instructor at the first session]
