EHStone Art: Draw Your Self-Portrait Class

WHEN: Tues. evenings May 23-June 6th 6:30-8:30 p.m.
WHERE: 52 Beacon Street Florence
COST: $150 includes materials

Looking in the mirror will you draw what you see or what you want to see? We will spend three sessions drawing the self-portrait from life. Proportion, values, line quality & gesture help you get a likeness. Charcoal and a limited palette of black, red, and white free you up to focus on drawing and expression. Contemporary portraiture will be our inspiration. This class is appropriate for beginners as well as the more experienced artist. Visit my website:
