            Times: 10:00 am - 12:00 pm   /   Course Fee: $

Drawing is both an art in itself and a tool used in painting. Students will learn how to capture the likeness of an object and use light and shading to make objects appear three dimensional, as well as learn the rules of perspective. The class will include some human anatomy (NO nude models) and still life arrangements. NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. ALL LEVELS WELCOME. This course is ongoing and open to both mature teenagers and adults.

How this works: You may purchase one class at a time, or a group of 5 classes (best deal), but you must attend your class or classes within eight weeks of purchase.  This spread of time allows for individual travel interruptions or other personal issues during the eight-week period.  

How to enroll: Richard Corwin is a WCAC sanctioned independent contractor and will book your class, or group of classes himself.  If you are interested in attending, please contact him at either (757) 707-8860 or corwinshome@yahoo.com.  Once Richard confirms availability for your class or classes, you will need to pay him directly either by cash or check – no credit cards accepted.  He will give you a receipt which he will also file with WCAC.  WCAC will not book these classes or accept payments for them. However, if you have any questions, please contact Andrea Lemieux at (757) 229-4949 or Janis Wood at (757) 220-2217.
