Edwina Caci's Drawing & Painting Class
Edwina's class will continue to meet under the same structure and format as it had in the past. However, covering for her will be Tony Visco.
Drawing is a key to successful artwork. This instructor focuses on giving each student individual attention in order to improve drawing skills and guide the completion of the artwork in charcoal, pencil, and or oil/acrylic/watercolor paint. Students choose their own subject matter as they work from still life, photos of their choice, or portrait. Bring materials that suit your medium.
