This hybrid class can be taken virtually or in-person. If you wish to attend in-person, please register for the in-person session. If you wish to attend virtually via Zoom, please register for the online session. These sessions will take place simultaneously, the two sessions are just for us to track how many students will be coming in-person versus virtually.
Pick your favorite medium and set aside your Tuesday evenings for building your drawing and painting skills. In this relaxed, intimate class, beginning and intermediate students are encouraged to work at their own pace with guidance from the instructor on a variety of subjects including still-lifes and photographs. Projects are adapted to each student’s skill level. All levels welcome; beginners start with drawing.
