Do you want to go to art school, but need to improve your skills? This class will provide you with the foundations of life-drawing, portraiture, perspective, the figure, and developing your particular strengths in a concentration. A portfolio consists of about 15-20 pieces of solid work that displays understanding of anatomy, shading, gesture, still life, and portraits. The emphasis is life drawing. All levels of skill are welcome. The instructor has been a teacher and portfolio reviewer at SOTA (School of the Arts).
