Watertown Artist Teaching Series of Drawing Classes

Print

The following information was provided by First Baptist Church of Belmont:

Artist Audrey Childs is teaching a beginner’s drawing class where students will learn to draw what you see versus what you think you see.

Does your drawing look like your subject? Do you usually draw stick trees and figures? Are you happy with the layout you prepped for coloring with any medium?

Classes will include exercises to train hand and eye coordination that will aid in capturing an improved drawing of your subject. Guided projects will cover the use of line (edges), tone (light and shadow), space (negative and positive) and relationships (perspective, proportion, etc.). No previous drawing experience is needed. Join and have fun!

The basic drawing class will consist of 6 weeks. Fee: $60.00 / Cost of Supplies $28.00 (Ordered in advance of class. Ask for a list if you choose to purchase your own supplies).

WHEN: Thursdays, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM, June 27 – August 1, 2018
(A makeup class for the July 4 holiday will be determined.)

WHERE: First Baptist Church of Belmont
129 Lexington Street.
Belmont, MA 02478
