Drawing Class with Jude Tolar, PSA, IAPS/MC
Two Saturday afternoons
October 12 & November 9, 2019, 12:30-3:30 pm
A drawing class in which we’ll learn to draw faces. The focus is on drawing the facial form, not necessarily a portrait.
We’ll work from life, with a live model. The first session will use graphite on white drawing paper. The second session will use Conte crayon on Canson Mi-Tientes paper.
—For the October 12 session: 1 sheet white drawing paper 18x24” —not newsprint. Full-size; don’t cut it down.
—For the November 9 session:1 sheet Canson Mi-Tientes drawing paper, Moonstone color, 19x25". Full-size; don’t cut it down.
I’ll have Canson Mi-Tientes sheets available for you to buy, at my cost of $2 each
You are welcome to bring your own. It needs to be Moonstone, or tan/light gray/similar. Not white and not a dark color.
