Drawing and painting classes begin Wednesday, June 18, and continue every other week through Aug. 28 at Art-is-Davis, 222 D St.
Joanne Andresen will teach the classes. The first drawing class runs from 11 to noon on Wednesday, June 18, with a “re-run” from 11 to noon on Thursday, June 19.
According to Andresen, this is a “fundamental introduction to drawing” that includes everyday observations and the introduction of a form of measuring to help to draw a likeness of something. July and August lessons will involve one- and two-point perspective, rendering objects with shading to give a sense of volume, shadows on objects and cast by objects, simple figure lessons and drawing with materials other than pencils.
Individuals should bring a drawing tablet (minimum 9-by-12 inches), 2B and 4B pencils, and a good eraser.
The painting class runs from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday. Students should bring their materials. Andresen will have a still life set up or students may bring photos or work in progress. All mediums and levels of expertise are accepted.
The cost for the drawing class is $15 per session, and painting is $20 per session. Discounts are available for signing up for four classes. Additional classes are July 2 and 3, 16 and 17, 30 and 31, Aug. 13 and 14 and 27 and 28.
