We ALL must continue to improve our drawing skills! Many students, beginner and (some) advanced, rely too heavily on drawing from photographs. With that limited success at copying, manny believe their drawing skills are solid. They are deceiving themselves. When forced to draw from life or memory, their deception becomes obvious.

This first series of classes will break that photographic crutch and free you to draw confidently and expressively. This crucial first series of classes will prepare you for subsequent series in color, composition and edges.

When I attended Studio Incamminati 17 years ago, I happily endured an artist's boot camp of structured, competency-based, technical study. That formal and extensive training gave me the advanced tools to draw and paint at a professional level. (Today, Studio Incamminati recommends a four year program.) 

I'd like to offer a similarly structured, but significantly shorter, series of courses at Warehouse 521. Instead of the short "A to Z" courses I've offered in the past, I'm now offering a series of classes that focuses on rigorous progressive training. 

On 3 Tuesday afternoons and evenings, in August, I"ll begin offering a more comprehencive drawing course that focuses on better methods for seeing and drawing. This first series of classes will push your observational and drawing skills to new levels. We'll explore composition, value relationships, patterns, mood, edges and more. 

Bring whatever medium you choose: pencil, charcoal or paint (monochrome). Demonstrations will be primarily in charcoal or monochrome paint.

So, whether you're a beginner or an advanced student, this series of courses is crucial for improving your artistic chops. Let's start with "Improving Our Drawing."
