Our new Expression Session package allows you flexibility in scheduling (you choose the day) and opportunities to share drawing with other students while keeping a disciplined focus on lessons. Small class size ensures that each sketcher gets personal attention with their particular lesson. $150 gets you 4, 2-hour sessions. Adult and youth classes are always forming.
“I really enjoy these drawing evenings. I love the music and how I can get so lost in the moment. [Rob] always makes it around to all of us with helpful suggestions.” —Sue, Level 2 adult student

SI Expression Session Classes Winter, 2012
Wednesday and Thursday evenings (Saturdays are available for groups and special workshops)
Level 1: 6:00-8:00pm (4 weeks)
Explore! Drawing coach, Rob Court, introduces students to basic skills such as gripping the pencil, blocking-in shapes, measuring proportions, and perception of space. Students quickly gain confidence as sketchers in these fun, informative classes for beginners–especially for those who think they can’t draw. (Read reviews about Rob’s teaching method.)
Level 2: 6:30-8:30pm (4 weeks)
Experiment! Our Level 2 lessons get students into experimenting with different media (graphite, charcoal, pastels, ink), drawing papers, and techniques. Students are introduced to basic principles in composition with an emphasis on drawing from observation and from the imagination. Students are also encouraged to explore specific areas of interest in drawing such as sketchbooking, illustration, design, and animation.
Level 3: 7-9pm (or you can start at 6:30)
Express! After honing their skills and experimenting with materials, our Level 3 lessons help students to find their voice in drawing and learn ways to express it. Whether it’s more intensive studies in realism or surrealism, concept art or fine art, the Scribbles Institute provides guidance and tools for the exciting process of drawing out your inner artist.
