Life Drawing Workshop: Summer 2011

I will be instructing an 8 week life drawing workshop at Sony Online Entertainment from May 17th to July 12th, this summer. Every Tuesday night from 6 - 9 pm, we will draw from life, using nude models to study the human form, draw expressively and to practice observational drawing.

Must Have:

A big drawing board, at least 18 x 24.
