You asked, we listened, “Drawing with the Masters 6” will start on July 13.

Drawing with the Masters has become a gym where we can exercise our mind and technical skills but also socialize with fellow artists. Copying from Old (and Young) masters, is a great way to practice and learn a variety of drawing techniques and stimulate creativity.

Following the input of recent students, (thank you Francie) I am also introducing a new feature: “drawing in the style of…”, where the students will practice creating a couple of original drawings in the style of one or more of the Masters’ art we will work from, during the 5 weeks of duration of the course.
