The Life Drawing Connection  

with Erika Gofton

Suitable for: ALL LEVELS

Session Times Available: (AM) Morning or (PM) Afternoon


This two hour life drawing intensive will give participants some effective strategies to work more confidently with the human figure; looking at gesture, proportion, and basic anatomy.
