Drawing & Painting




Class Description

Ethan Lima will guide you into the magnificent world of art and drawing. He will cover the basics of drawing and painting from life as well as providing individualized instruction and critiques, making this a great class for those who have never picked up a pencil or a brush before as well as for those who have been doing both for a while. Develop basic observational skills to make your drawing the object in front of you and learn about values and tonal relationships to make your drawing 3D. The painting sessions will focus on basic techniques like color mixing and application techniques. In the classes, Ethan will cover fundamentals of design and composition, enabling you to attain a higher degree of artistry in your drawings and paintings. Anyone and everyone can learn to draw and paint, and under Ethan’s guidance, you will gain fundamental skills and an understanding of how both skills work together!
