Registration: Call 415-334-3603 or email: lindahope.art@gmail.com to enroll, or with questions. 

About this class: This first six-week round of classes, using a fundamental approach, would be perfect for beginners, or for those who might want to re-enter the practice of drawing from a live model. The basic elements of gesture, line, and value will be explored, with exercises that introduce them singly, and then combine them for more complex drawings.  All model fees are included in the cost of the class!  Class size limited to 16.

Figure Drawing II

When: Saturdays June 25-August 6, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Where: MPIC Clubhouse,* 350 O’Shaughnessy Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94127
Cost: $375  for 7-week course.  This includes the model fee!
Registration:  Call 415-334-3603 or email: lindahope.art@gmail.com to enroll, or with questions. 

About this class: This round of classes will shift into the introduction of concepts, constructs and methods that go beyond the beginning or “Fundamental” level.  These will include  various uses and types of line, gestural responses to introduce narrative, and the application of value towards expressive content.  All model fees are included in the cost of the class!  Class size limited to 16.
