Life Drawing and Painting

Figure painting
Figure painting by Hannah Wehling

Life drawing is at the core of any serious program of fine arts. In these classes, students draw from the figure in pencil, charcoal, including an option of painting. Each drawing or painting is created over a period of sessions, developing the student's eye for accurate gesture, proportions, and anatomy. With a single sustained pose, students will have the option of either taking one drawing/painting to a high degree of finish or completing several drawings from different positions around the model.

Fall & Winter sessions: 14 weeks, $420
Summer session: 10 weeks, $285
