From quick gesture drawings to more “studied” poses, students will explore expression and physicality of the human form on paper. Our model will wear a swim suit or dance leotard, costume, or drapes for poses. Please note that this is not an anatomy drawing class. This class is open to intermediate or advanced level drawing students. A $30.00 lab fee covers the cost of the model as well as drawing supplies for the class.Class size limited to 10.
Print Making (Intaglio, Photo Silk Screen, Relief)
There are a variety of techniques when it comes to print making. Some techniques require a press, others require some special chemicals, and some can be done with things that are laying around the house. From the basic mono print to the wood carved block to the more “modern” approach of photo silk screen we try to offer different classes in this amazing medium. So check our schedule for what is being offered this semester. No experience is required, but this is a medium that is often used by artists that enjoy drawing/painting/ bookmaking, or photography. A lab fee of $30.00 covers the cost of chemistry, tools, paper and ink for instructor led projects.Additional supplies will be available for purchase. Class size limited to 8 – 10.
