Life Drawing Workshop: Fall 2011

Get your ART on at the Sony Life Drawing Workshop! I will be instructing a private, 8 week life drawing workshop for the artists and animators at Sony Online Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment America from September 13th to November 1st, this fall.

Every Tuesday night from 6 - 9 pm, we will draw from life, using nude models to study the human form, draw expressively and to practice observational drawing.
