2021 Classes and Workshops  

Drawing Is Everything: Wednesdays, April 14, 21, 28, May 5, 12 4:30-6pm PDT
Drawing Is Everything is an abstract drawing class, which includes brief exercises, discussion of abstract drawing works by various artists and sharing of student work in class. We’ll be working with the ingredients artists use to make art as well as the design principles that help us determine wha good art is. Drawing Is Everything is the name of a recent book about the abstract drawing collection at the Menil Drawing Institute in Houston, Texas--the first museum space in the U.S. dedicated to contemporary drawing. Students will complete weekly drawing assignments and brief daily “morning pages” outside of class $250. FULL  Contact Sara for information about future drawing classes.
