This class is geared toward preparing students for the specialized art high schools: creating a varied portfolio that shows technical skill as well as creativity and learning the elements of the drawing done during the auditions. The classes are small and include extensive one-on-one instruction and figure drawing from the model.  We focus on drawing and painting from observation using still life, figure, portrait and other themes.  Students will develop their drawing skills in proportion, composition, line and light & shadow.
