Life Drawing Workshop - Summer 2012

Guache study: Graham Smith

Get your ART on at the Sony Life Drawing Workshop! I will be instructing a private, 8 week life drawing workshop for the artists and animators at Sony Online Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment America from May 8th to July 10th, this summer.

Every Tuesday night from 6 - 9 pm, we will draw from life, using nude models to study the human form, draw expressively and to practice observational drawing. This Summer's workshop will concentrate on long poses after 20 minutes of warm up drawings.
