Drawing Practice: Drawing Live Subjects in Public will be taught beginning on April 30, 2017. You can REGISTER HERE.
This is an older post that may not get updated going forward beyond 2017.
Please use the navigation bar of this blog to go to Classes—Class schedule to learn what is offered in any given year.
To see a video description of this class please see my blog post for Friday, June 19, 2015. (Note that in the 2017 version of this class new lessons may post on different weekdays from those mentioned in the video. This will be announced when the schedule is set.)
This is a teacher-involved class. Twice a week during a 30-day period a new lesson will open. Each lesson includes demonstrations and handouts and covers three or four days of homework. I actively participate in this class answering student questions to keep you working.
There is daily homework. If you are traveling during the duration of the class I recommend you wait and enroll at another time. This class is designed to immerse you in your drawing practice by giving you daily exercises that hone your drawing and observation skills and foster your daily drawing commitment with increasing practice times. Two days a week you also need to allow video viewing time before completing your homework.
There will also be two live webinars during the class.
You have lifetime access to the videos and can rewatch them and review class material at any time, but I encourage you to take advantage of the intensive nature of this class by participating during the 30-days of class.
Many students join a special Facebook group for students after the 30-day class ends. Even though I am not in the classroom on a regular basis after the 30-day period I will respond to questions asked within the classroom.
Who would benefit from this class?
• Anyone interested in improving his drawing and observational skills, regardless of current skill level.
• Anyone interested in working with live subjects and sketching in public.
• Anyone interested in creating a durable daily sketching practice.
• Anyone interested in ways to build momentum in a sketching and journaling practice.
• Anyone who needs strategies for dealing with his internal critic.
• Anyone interested in developing a new vocabulary and dialog about his art practice.
There are no required supplies for this class. You can work with any sketch media you desire.
However, I will be demonstrating with certain media, and I also recommend what I think are essential materials for the best results or for quicker skill acquisition.

A supply kit is typical available through Wet Paint. If so I will add a link here and send an email update to all registered students. I try to arrange kits as a convenience to the students and I do not receive any financial consideration if you purchase supplies from Wet Paint.
