Drawing Practice: Drawing Live Subjects in Public begins March 1, 2020
REGISTRATION OPENS February 21, 2020: Click here when registration opens (for a live link)
To see a video description of this class please see my blog post for Friday, June 19, 2015. (In 2020 new lessons post every Sunday and Wednesday.)
Twice a week during a 30-day period a new lesson will open. Each lesson includes video lectures, video demonstrations, and handouts covering either three or four days of homework. I will monitor the class several times during the month to answer questions. There is also a very lengthy FAQ to keep you going with your daily homework.
For ALL students 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.
You will also need to make time for sketching in public two or more times a week. Student will work only from live subjects (with some work on still life subjects). No one will work from photographs.
Two live webinars are included in the class.
You have access to the videos and class materials through December 31, 2021 (or as long as I continue the platform after that).
Because you have extended access you can feel comfortable working through the month-long class doing your homework, knowing that at the end of the month you can always return to rewatch the videos.
I encourage you to take advantage of the intensive nature of this class by participating during the 30-days of class. This class is also about mastering your internal critic, and the intensity of the class with the frequent changes of lesson focus all build in a way designed to your improve your drawing skills as well as your creative habit.
Many students join a special Facebook group for students after the 30-day class ends.
After the 30-day class I will still respond to student questions, however, response time from me after the 30-day class period has ended will dependent on my other scheduled work.
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.
