Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. 
Instructor: Phyllis Laver 
One-Week Intensive (30 Hours)

If you’ve never drawn before, or your skills are a little rusty, then this class is for you. Learn to draw what you see with confidence. Work from still life arrangements, interior spaces, and the human figure to master the drawing elements: shape, contour line, composition, light and shadow, texture and perspective. Instruction will guide students through sight-drawing and measuring techniques, use of materials, shading methods, and ways of defining form and space. This course is excellent as a foundation for future study, including for painting and other disciplines.  Note: Tuition includes a $35 models fee. 

Optional: This course is available for 1.0 undergraduate credit for $630 (including models fee). Select credit option with price adjustment when registering.
