Life Drawing Session

An introduction to creating drawings based on in-class observations of a live (nude) model. In the class you will start with a series of gesture drawings to get warmed up and see the entire figure (getting the feel of the body through simple line) and then a series of 25 minute drawings where the teacher will help you according to your needs in different techniques in how to render the human figure through a variety of materials ranging from charcoal to graphite. The student will aim to develop a sensitivity to the structure, anatomy and expressive qualities of the human form in a variety of ways including; line, plane, value, mass and shape.

Our first Playful Tree class completed successfully. All students are proud parents of a cactus garden!

A selection of cactus - tall & short, big & small, bright & colorful were available for students to mix & match into their own pot.

We provide full set of equipment including gloves.

Note from our instructor: Be careful about mixing different size cactuses as they absorb water at different rates.

Collage Birthday Party

They never thought collage can be so much fun.
Joyce decided to have her birthday party at RAW. She asked her guests to create series of collages with theme: black, white and red. Instructor Sherri Maxwell explained the concept of collage, gave instructions, and inspired each guest to come up with a motif.

The guests loved tearing from magazines. It's addictive! They got so involved, they didn't want to stop for dinner.
