Allison, shown in the above photos, has been drawing with Rob for almost two years. She managed to log in some sketch time during the fall Expression Session and produced some very impressive charcoal studies.


Level 2 sketcher Karla advanced quickly in learning to block in tonal values of a bowl of apples with charcoal, shown above.


Level 2 adult students ventured into learning about basics in composition and still life drawing. Above left is Karla’s drawing and to the right Casey puts finishing touches on her wonderful charcoal still life.


During Level 1 lessons students study a landscape drawing by Vincent Van Gogh. The photo above left shows Linda mapping out her Van Gogh sketch. Above left is Sue’s expressive line work inspired by the energy of Van Gogh’s sketch strokes.
