Instructor: Andrew Sookrah

Level: Open to all skill levels. Our instructor is an experienced educator and will adapt his teaching style to any skill level for his students.

Program Description

Working with professional female and male models, Andrew will guide participants through the basics with simple yet effective exercises that will help them create a drawing or painting of the human figure. He will conduct demonstrations in various media styles with running commentary on the process. Elements of proportion and the connectivity of all elements of the human form will be explored as participants progress to effective uses of line, dramatic light, shadow and shading, and tonal values. Andrew will guide participants along their unique path of creative expression in the medium of their choice. Guidance will be offered for charcoal, pencil, water-mixable oils, acrylic or watercolour.
