Through a variety of drawing materials students will be introduced to drawing techniques that explore the use of line, shape, positive-negative space, linear perspective and shading. Although suggestions for subjects to draw will be offered students are free to choose their own subject matter in which to incorporate any or all of the techniques introduced. Instruction will be adapted to meet the individual ages and skill levels of each student so that all students receive optimal instruction as they explore their own creativity.
Payment is due in cash or by check when students are dropped off for class. If you have pre-registered your child/children for more than one class session of the four drawing sessions offered in March and wish to pre-pay for the class sessions in which your child/children are registered you may do so when they are dropped off for their first class. Checks should be made payable to Christine Sotos-Barrera
Class size is limited to 10 students per session due to available teaching space, therefore pre-registration is required.
