Preregistration is required to attend all classes and workshops at Arlene’s. Space is limited so please register soon. Click the link to register online. Otherwise, please come into the store, at 57 Fuller Rd Albany NY, or call us, (518) 482-8881, to reserve your space.
If you have the desire to draw realistically, you can learn how. This workshop is designed to give the beginning student a strong foundation in the necessities for all drawing, whether still-life, figure, portrait, or landscape. It will also be helpful for the more experienced student who wants to revitalize their drawing approaches. We’ll discuss how our brain works in right mode and left mode and how to learn how to shift into the right mode where most drawing skills are located. There will be exercises in action/gesture drawing, blind and modified contour, seeing and drawing negative space, showing value (dark and light), and rendering basic forms. We will put these all together by doing a portrait, working from a reproduction of a classical drawing. A supply list will be provided upon registration and supplies are not included in the cost of the workshop.
Please note that our classes are typically held in the lower level of Arlene’s. Because access to the lower level is available only by stair, please let us know if using the stairs presents any difficulty for you in advance of the class so we can make alternate arrangements. We want to make sure everyone is able to enjoy and participate in our classes.
