Drawing Seminar at the Newberry Library-Chicago

If you ever wanted to learn how to draw, or realize that you need to gain or brush up on drawing skills, now is your chance to do it.   I have now taught two successful watercolor classes in a row at Newberry (Summer 2009, Winter/Spring 2010) and was asked by several students to offer a sketching class. This Fall Schedule proposed seminar is for those who want to know how to get started learning to sketch freehand, or for those who need to brush up on sketching. People love to be able to sketch things they see when they travel or when they observe something noteworthy and this course is designed to give people confidence with sketching what they see.

I find that all levels of participants benefit from drawing practice. More advanced artists can experiment with colored drawing materials like pastels or colored pencils.  All the masters spent countless hours drawing, and people feel quite rewarded when they can capture what they see accurately. Supplies are inexpensive.  You already have some materials at home. A recommended supply list is given.

Four Saturdays, 9AM to 12 Noon
Sept. 25, Oct. 2, Oct. 9, Oct. 16

4 sessions, $160 (supplies not included)
