Classes and Workshops for March 2017

March 1, 8, 15, 22-DRAWING CLASS and PAINTING CLASS combined taught by STEVE KLEIER

Some people want to draw for its own sake, others to improve their painting. This class is good for both because you will learn principles of drawing that can be used on their own or
applied to painting. Join me this March for watercolor in the modern tradition. We cover a variety of subjects and always include useful information about drawing. If it is landscapes, city scenes, figures or whatever I’m sure you will gain a greater understanding of how to look at like an artist. Join me for fun and learning. Steve sends out an email with reference photos before each class.
