Join us for a 3-hour workshop to learn to draw people!
Students will be introduced to various approaches on how to render moods, postures, facial expressions, muscle structure and more. This class includes several warm-up studies which will lead to longer-duration projects. Through direct observation of live and photographed models, we will create detailed studies of the human form and general proportions of the human head. This session is 3 hours, so be sure to bring a lunch or snacks for our scheduled in-class breaks! Drawing supplies and large paper portfolios will be provided, or feel free to bring your own. This workshop will repeat on Saturday Nov 11, from 9AM to noon, for anyone who wants more practice. You can sign up for either one or both of the figure drawing workshops, your choice! To register, click on one or both dates above.

Toddlers, sign up your mom or dad to bring you to this 1-hour VineArts workshop! This class is for ages 1 to 4.
