While we can’t meet together in person right now, we can join artist and instructor Leslie Barlow online for a live drawing class! You have more art materials around your house than you might imagine—just a piece of paper and a pencil will do. Chris Holt of Wet Paint will give us a quick rundown of other household items that double as art supplies if you don’t already have yours ready to go.
What do I need?
A piece of paper and a pencil are enough! Holt will give you a sense of what household materials you can use if you do not already have art supplies at home.
What will we be drawing?
We have two models who will be fully clothed.
How do I sign up?
Register on Zoom and a you’ll received a link allowing you to join us at 7 pm.
What will we do in the workshop?
Just like our in-person life drawing workshops, participants will be led through lose instruction from Leslie Barlow. The models will change poses and you will have timed opportunities to sketch.
