Winter 2018 Drawing with Curney Nuffer

Wednesdays, January 10–February 28 |  1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

 

Perplexed by perspective? Anxious about angles? Confused by composition? Bring out or rekindle your inner artist! Curney Nuffer believes in simplicity, using four tools for drawing: 1) plumb lines, 2) angles, 3) mapping, and 4) negative space. Complicated concepts on composition and perspective are explained using illustrations and easy-to-understand demonstrations. Each class provides the opportunity to explore the ancient art of drawing in a relaxed environment. This class is great for beginners and for those who want to strengthen their drawing skills. The supply list is simple and will be emailed upon registration. Fee: $240 for 8 classes, paid in advance. No refunds or carryover credits after class begins.
