For the classes below, some drawing experience is helpful.
If you’re ready to branch out into a new medium, how about Waxy Media Techniques? Lisa Semerad will show you how to use oil pastels, colored pencils, oil bars, pigment sticks and grease pencils.

For drawing humans (portrait and figure), we have several options you can pursue. Gesture Drawing with John Murray is all about capturing movement (you can read more about it in this blog post). For more advanced students, check out Expressive Figure Drawing with Susan O’Neill, a new class this school year.
Portrait Drawing with Jin Chung is the place to go to learn to capture a likeness. Check out the instructor at work in this video.
If you’re in the mood to practice figure or portrait drawing on your own — but in a supervised, focused environment — there’s always Open-Life Drawing Sessions (Long Pose). This Saturday class lets you use your own media and your own pace to draw from a live model. (For shorter poses, there are also open sessions on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.)
