Skill Building Drawing Program with Liam Vogel

This semi private drawing program is intended to help students develop and improve their drawing ability, no matter what skill level they currently have. Students will be given different traditional drawing exercises depending on their skill level and artistic interests. The instructor will work with each student one on one, in a semi private format, to determine the best possible course of development. Classes will end with a discussion of that days assignments, followed by a critique of  the work that was accomplished. Students may bring outside assignments if they require assistance with a particular drawing that they hope to complete. All materials for in class assignments will be supplied by the instructor, but students are encouraged to get a sketchbook for working outside of class. The instructor will provide each student with optional sketchbook assignments for drawing exercises, which is considered an essential practice for any developing artists. Due to the class being offered in a semi private format, class size is very limited, so students must pre register in advance.

Class is Saturdays 2:00pm-4:00pm and is open to all styles of drawing (illustration, observational realism, etc)
