We have rescheduled the Portrait Drawing Class that Barbara Tobias will conduct in January because a couple of people asked that we do it during the day so they would not have to drive at night. This four session class will take place 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm on Mondays, January 8, 15, 22, and 29.
Barbara will concentrate on standard proportions for male and female faces and how to alter them to reflect individuality of the person sitting for the portrait.
The class will be working primarily with graphite pencils, although those who prefer to work in charcoal or another drawing medium can do so.
Supplies needed are a sketch pad (at least 8.5 inches by 11 inches), one or more pencils, and a kneaded eraser. Barbara will supply paper for a final drawing to give students the chance to see the difference that quality of paper can make.
If you are interested in taking the class, please call the gallery at 479-394-3880 to register as space in our classroom is limited.
