Class Description

Intro to Drawing & Painting Classes for Young Adults and Adults

Ages 15 and up. This class is mostly young adults and older adults. If you are interested in a class for youths to young adults or youths, in the Mandarin area, I encourage you to visit our Saturday classes at Burnett Park. There is also a class for Cartooning and Illustration class in Murray Hill on Saturdays.

*FLEXI-SCHEDULE – Year-Round Class Dates – Miss a Class & Make it Up!

In this class we will explore drawing and painting from imagination to still life in various media. You will have a chance to explore pencil, charcoal, ink, watercolors, acrylics and pastels and understand appropriate techniques to use with each. One-on-one instruction will follow a brief discussion so you will have a chance to develop your style and explore your personal interest.

*This class is an ongoing class and has no specific start date or end date but is on a flex schedule to help you with your tight scheduling needs, so drop in and see what we can work with you on.

Supplies

Please bring a basic drawing pad, an eraser, *pencil(s) and a pencil sharpener. Materials for painting can be discussed when you arrive since paint supplies can be costly.

*There are a variety of pencils to chose from. If you are unsure then a good choice would be the “General’s #555” or a basic set of drawing pencils that have different degrees of graphite (2h, H, B, 2B, etc.). If you get a set then look for the ones that include a sharpener and eraser if possible. More materials will be discussed in class.
