White_Cast_DrawingYou can learn a great deal from drawing white cast. The plaster is white so there is no color distracting the student enabling him or her to see the form better while looking at a monochrome reference.  This lesson is designed to combine concepts such as the envelope, line and value in order to produce a solid drawing of the cast.

Whether you are a beginner or advanced artist, who wants to add additional techniques to your repertoire, this classical atelier lesson is adaptable to your skill level.

When:             Wednesday, October 8   from  6pm to 9 pm

Cost:               $40.00 (all material included)
