ONSITE: Secrets of Classical Drawing: The Still Life

Learn skills taught in ateliers and academies in centuries past and put them to use to create your own fresh artwork. You'll learn tricks of the trade and classical drawing techniques like proportion, value and form-building in two dimensions. These skills can be used to capture traditional subjects like figures and nature scenes, or they can be incorporated into your own contemporary practices.
