Additional Beginner Drawing Classes Scheduled Due to Strong Resident Interest

Dale Farland

Due to the overwhelming positive reception to the Beginner Drawing I and II classes, the SBR Art Club is excited to offer an additional Beginner Drawing II class to our community. With so many interested residents wanting to take their drawing skills to an higher level, Lisa Friedman, SBR resident and artist, is offering the Beginner Drawing II class again in September. Beginner Drawing II is for those who want to continue or simply join the class at this level. All classes will be held in the Art Room within the SBR Creative Arts and Tech Center.

Beginner Drawing II class description: Beginner Drawing II is a 6-hour course, divided over three days. The participants will dive into creating volume and more realistic depictions of form through value; exploring topics of light and dark, shadow, and shading; and will touch briefly on texture. While it is preferable to have already taken Beginner Drawing I, it is not required. The students will be using charcoal and will need to dress accordingly.

Dates for the 3 classes: Wednesdays, Sept. 14, Sept. 21, and Sept. 28

Time: 3 to 5 p.m.

Class fee: $65, class fee includes instruction and some materials
