Drawing can be described as an inquiring investigation into visible appearance, and the learned discipline should never exclude the potential for free and spontaneous input. Intuition, feelings and impulse are essential elements to the personal development of drawing skills. This class offers an opportunity to really look at the form, structure, spaces and surfaces of the nude figure and seek a unique and individual expression of making what we see visible. Increasing our knowledge and extending our ability is an ongoing and continuous process to which everyone is invited! Please join our quest for improvement and ways to make different or better drawings. This class is limited to 14 students per class so sign up today!
