Live Outside the Lines : Draw 1

Create stunning artwork with professional artists from the Drawing Studio. Instructors in this 8-part series of classes will emphasize that the practice of art is a lifelong exploration.

Participants will learn how to draw from observation. These classes will introduce the basic language of drawing and how it is used to communicate what and how we observe. You will discover not only that you can draw, but you will acquire the core of what it is to draw, which is how to observe.

This program is part of our Fit for Life 50+ series and is presented courtesy of the Friends of the Pima County Library. All supplies are provided at no cost.

Class size is limited.
Registration is required prior to the first class. Please call 594-5420 beginning September 10 to register for these classes. You must be available for all eight classes. SORRY. THIS CLASS IS NOW FULL. Class 1 of 8.
