Beginners and Experienced artists alike are welcome: if your drawing is not where you want it to be, join us for this course! Line, value, perspective, composition, rendering, material usage; all this and more are discussed, demonstrated and practiced during our sessions. Beginning students will be working simply to achieve effective results; advanced students can work on more complex problems. If you want to know how to render fabric, draw an ellipse or cube, or learn how to spot compositional errors in your work, this class is for you!

  1. I could go for the Tues. pm

    And, by the way, Cathy Riggs at I’ve Been Framed on Ferry St. Martinez is having show featuring nudes in Feb. CALL Her! You must have some extra nudes hanging around! (925) 228-7353

  2. I’ve enrolled in your Virtual Pastel Class but I will need information about how to connect with you online. I’m sure you’re prepared to get back to us with this info.

    Unfortunately, once again, I’m dealing with a family difficult that will likely preclude me from attending your upcoming figure session at the Lynn House this weekend. Please let Doug know my intended space is available.

    Can you either decline my registration or
    Return one class registration to me.
