Life Drawing in Watercolor and Graphite

Course Update, October 10, 2011

Two places left.

“Drawing the Nude” is a course for those interested in the following:

  1. Train and develop their hand at figure drawing;
  2. Share with others their challenges and solutions;
  3. Participate in a critical analysis of the work at the end of each session.

A model is present for the duration of the course.  This past Spring the medium of choice was conte’ and colored paper, but this Fall I’d like to focus on watercolor and water-soluble graphite.
