Drawing Essentials Beginner Class

Nanaimo Art Gallery The Nanaimo Art Gallery Campus Location, 900 Fifth Street, building 330, has announced Drawing Essentials, a beginner drawing class for eight year olds and up with artist Lori Sorensen.

Drawing Essentials will focus on spontaneous sketching, basics of composition, and an introduction to collage. By experimenting with drawing implements and a range of paper types, students will become comfortable working in different media and develop skills that will foster a life long love of drawing. Lessons in blind contour and gesture drawing will increase the ability of the hand to draw what the eye can see.

The course will be split into four two-hour sessions for a total of eight hours. The sessions will run from from 1 to 3 pm on four Saturdays: October 25, November 1, November 8, and November 15. The total cost for the four sessions is $80 with some materials being supplied by the Nanaimo Art Gallery and the instructor. Additional supplies to be purchased by the participants include a small sketch book, two drawing pencils (soft lead), and a soft eraser. To register, call 250-740-6350.
