Drawing Workshop starts July 23

New class starts July 23! Sign up now to reserve your place! 

This class introduces basic techniques in drawing, with a focus on drawing from observation. Exercises explore technique, medium and strategies in visual thinking. The class is a perfect introduction for beginners, with something new even for the more experienced.

Each class is structured around a formal topic (contour lines, tonality, negative space...), with examples from art-history and a brief discussion. We will build technique through a series of guided exercises, followed by time for experimentation and longer drawings. We will draw from a live model and from still life creations.

We will make several excursions to draw out in the field, including the ready-made still lives of Berlin’s Natural History Museum, the statues in the Pergamon Museum, and a plein air site.  This workshop is also suitable for teenagers! Inquire for more details.

"Excellent for first-timers! Challenging for slightly more experienced!  
Stimulating for experienced artists too. You've got nothing to loose. Mira's Life drawing class was our highlight of the past summer."
