    Tuition: $125 general, $112.50 PAC members
    Materials Fee: none

    This class will focus on drawing the nude figure from a live model with poses from 1 to 20 minutes in duration, with the possibility of working up to 3 hour poses depending on the consistency and progress of the students. Students will receive lots of one on one feedback and instruction as well as interaction and dialogue with other students.

    Chris will demonstrate, lead critiques, and work with students individually and as a group to emphasize drawing from life in a naturalistic and accurate manner.
    Students will be taught in the traditional linear-gestural method used since the Renaissance by artists and instructors in the Western school of realism.

    This course provides a unique opportunity of a quality life drawing class to local high school students who are mature, motivated and self disciplined enough to take advantage of the experience in advance of college. Building a portfolio of drawings and attaining a skill set will serve them well in future art endeavor pursuits. All skill levels welcome and encouraged.
