Draw with Me
Monday afternoons, 1-3:30, starting Jan. 16, 2017
This term we will explore drawing in a variety of media, with a goal of learning core aspects of drawing (perspective, for example), and producing interesting and frameable projects. If students wish, we can move on to painting as well.

"Painting should be a liberating experience, not one filled with rules. There is no limit to the ways a subject can be rendered and still be authentic."
"Artists shouldn't be concerned about whether they have talent. Talent is a word that is applied after an artist is accomplished. It is acquired from life experience and figuring out how to translate the visual world into paint."
~ Richard Schmid, artist, teacher
