Session 2 Drawing

Take your drawing to the next level! Working from observation and reference, we will explore the power of mark-making and the fundamental elements of line, value, form, perspective, composition, and proportion. Subject matter will vary, and include still life, landscapes, virtual clothed models, and architecture. All art supplies will be provided and can be picked up at MAM or shipped to your house.

All summer 2020 classes will take place online with live instruction on the Zoom platform. You will need a phone, tablet, or computer with internet access. Class sizes are limited to ensure lots of one-on-one interaction with the instructors, who are all professional artists.
