Session Description:
As a teacher of life drawing, I encourage you to learn the role of the nude in the history of art and to communicate your ideas about humanity through your work. Each of you have special qualities that you bring to your artwork; and, I try to structure classes that will help you advance your concepts and techniques. Questions and suggestions are encouraged and are a means of providing information that others may also want: let me know what you need! If you would like to work in a particular media or a demonstration of a technique, please let me know; and I will try to incorporate it into our classes. If you have your own agenda, feel free to pursue it.
