102 Drawing from the Masters – ONLINE

Course Overview:

This is a unique opportunity to study with two accomplished and warmhearted artist-educators in the same course. Ken and Stephanie are both well known for their ability to help each person find their own unique drawing abilities.

For the first three weeks, Stephanie will introduce you to well-founded drawing techniques by working from carefully selected high-quality past and present master drawings. Beginners are encouraged to start out with pencil or charcoal, while those with more experience may work in other mediums of their choosing. 

During the last three weeks, Ken will introduce color theory and watercolor into the mix by teaching you how to construct simplified portraits without noodling out details and how to paint clothed figures as simple dynamic well-designed shapes.

All levels are welcome, because instruction and demonstrations are given on an individual and group basis.

  • Strathmore 400 or Stonehenge drawing paper (Or paper of your choice)
