Draw the Portrait & Figure - 3 Wednesday evenings in April

Draw the Portrait & Figure
3 Wednesday evenings in April

Bangs Community Center
70 Boltwood Walk, Amherst
April 1,8,15 6-9 p.m.

Explore a variety of techniques to train the eye while using pencil, charcoal, and black/white/red Conte sticks for figure and portrait drawing. Whether you have confidence and experience or wish to challenge your “I can’t draw” belief, Betsy creates a supportive and instructive environment. Stimulating exercises, generous individual guidance, and group feedback will bring you to a new level of seeing and drawing. We will be drawing both portraits and figures from life.
