Youth Portrait Drawing Class

I'm teaching a 8 week Youth Portrait Drawing Class at my school in Victoria. The class starts Oct. 17th. Monday afternoons 4:15 to 5:45pm.

Class for youth age 11-17. Noah will teach classical techniques for drawing a realistic portrait. Noah will teach the use of plumb lines, comparative measurement, and tilt angle to find correct proportions. Working from a live clothed model, students will learn about ways to start a drawing, how to see and record shapes clearly and simply, and model form by carefully observing the properties of light. 
Lots of demos and individual instruction!
All levels of experience welcome, small class size.

I have two figure classes starting soon at my school in Victoria BC as well as a portrait drawing class for youth.

Block-in Figure Drawing starts April 28th, Thursdays 6:30-9:30pm
The block-in is a very important step in drawing well, it's the foundation and core that everything is built upon.

Long Pose Figure Drawing starts May 15th Sunday evenings 6:30 to 9:30pm.
One pose for the five weeks. One of my favorite classes and a great class to refine and develop your drawing ability.

Youth Portrait Drawing starts May 2nd. Mondays 4:15 to 5:45pm. For youth age 11-17. If you know of someone this age who is looking for a focused, skill based drawing class, please feel free to pass this info on to them.
