CURRENTLY SCHEDULED CLASSES

 

Yes, YOU Can Draw!
Saturday, February 17th, 10-2 at AAWM in Show Low
Instructor: Ann Anspach
Cost: $25 for AAWM members, $30 for non-members

You need paper, pencils, a good eraser, and lunch and/or snacks. If you only have a standard school pencil, that will work. You need several sheets of decent drawing paper, or you can purchase illustration boards at the center for $2.50 each. It makes an excellent drawing surface. We will be working on more than one subject/task, so you need to have enough drawing surfaces. We will work on choosing a subject/pose (composition), shading techniques/choices, and creating textures, as well as discussing supply options and tricks of the trade.

A follow-up class will be offered Saturday, March 17th, if there is interest. It is recommended that you take both classes to maximize the benefit. The second class will be $20, and is only open to those who came in February. There will be homework to do between the two classes, also to maximize the benefit. You should see real growth in your drawing abilities, if you follow the plan. Get past the hurdle of thinking you can’t draw, get past having drawing issues in every painting, and gain confidence in yourself as an artist.

We will all work on the same subject, including drawing the subject. You can work in the medium of your choice—pencil, watercolor, acrylic, pastels or oil. Bring the supplies you need, and at least two good sized surfaces to work on. You can purchase illustration board at the center for $2.50 each, if you choose to use that. Gain knowledge, skill, and confidence in your ability to draw a human, and in making convincing skin tones, if you are working in color, and how to make values work for you in a portrait. We will work on how to convey age and emotion in your work. You learn not only through your own work, but through observing the work of others.
