Westhaven Center for the Arts

6 week sessions- $55
Description: A traditional approach to drawing based on the methods used at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. The emphasis will be on learning accurate observational and motor skills, fundamentals such as line, composition and values and putting all these together to develop a personal point of view. Students will be able to experiment with a variety of drawing media and papers while they draw an interesting variety of objects from Susan’s personal collection, many from her travels to countries such as Kenya and Mongolia. Painters who would like to polish their drawing skills are encouraged to sign up.
A required materials list will be provided, but students are also encouraged to bring their own favorite drawing supplies and paper. You will need a drawing board with attached, or a separate pair of large, clamps and an easel or tabletop prop to hold it in a vertical position.
