Don’t Miss Out on Spring Classes!

Spring classes at The Art League School are starting soon — but it’s not too late to register! Check out our online catalog to find that new class in a medium you want to try out, a style you want to learn, or a technique you want to master. In addition to our nine-week classes starting the week of April 8, there are shorter-term workshops taking place over a day or two. Here’s just some of what’s on tap one upcoming weekend:

  • Drawing the Human Head with Rick Weaver (April 6 & 7): Working from a live model, learn the principles behind drawing the head, including the mechanics and anatomy of the head and neck.
  • Basic Photographic Lighting Tools with Robin Reid (April 6): Learn about tools like flash, strobe, reflectors, umbrellas, gels, gobos, grids, and snoots, and how to make some of your own.
  • Painting Children’s Rooms with Patrick Kirwin (April 6 & 7): Painting and drawing instructor Patrick Kirwin shares ideas and techniques for creating a unique environment in a child’s room or nursery.

We also just added a new seven-week class in Tapestry taught by Tea Okropiridze. You can register for Tapestry here, and read our interview with the instructor in this blog post.

For more ideas about what to try next, download the brochures with all our April and May workshops on the School homepage, or check out our YouTube demos to see some of our teachers in action!
