Join Allison Parker for this weekly three-hour class in drawing fundamentals.

Students will complete drawing exercises from simple plaster casts and master copies, offering the opportunity to slow down and focus on technique. Topics to be discussed will include measuring, the envelope method, shape-seeing, shading and proportion. Perfect for beginners or more experienced artists who want to refine their accuracy skills.

Allison Parker will instruct Beginning Painting, recommended for those with previous drawing experience. (The Foundations Drawing course is recommended but not required.)

This course will help students make the transition from black-and-white drawing to painting in color. We will explore several strategies to make this transition easier, helping the student develop his or her own 'best' process leading to a finished piece. We will use several types of preparatory studies and discuss how to finish or develop paintings in situations where live observation time is limited.
