June Drawing Classes

Monday Evenings at the Clark County Public Library: June 1, 8, 15, 22 at 6:30 pm Taught by Rebecca Chamberlain

Drawing for beginners is designed for anyone who has ever wanted to learn the basics of drawing. The four week summer class will begin with exercises designed to train your eye and hand as well as inspire your imagination. Students will learn about shapes, shading, contour drawing, and negative space. This class will be a step-by-step introduction to drawing and is well suited for people with little or no drawing background as well as for artists who might like a refresher course in what Michelangelo called, “the foundation of all art.” When you sign up, please ask for the list of supplies you will need. The instructor will provide all drawing handouts and additional tools.

Local artist Rebecca Chamberlain has taught private drawing classes in Winchester for fourteen years. Her drawings and paintings can be found in private collections in Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, and Arkansas. Rebecca is co-founder and President of the Winchester Drawing Society.

This class is free and open to the public, but participation is limited to 12, so you must register to attend. Register at 859-744-5661.
