On Monday evenings, after check in, those who wish will DRAW together using the classic The Natural Way to Draw. This program is designed for beginning as well as professional artists. We will read aloud the section on an exercise from the book beginning with "contour" then "gesture" and then draw together for an hour. If you can, spend a couple more hours drawing using the directions from the exercise, during the week. You only need paper and pencil, but you may use other media. The book, published by Dover press is now in the public domain and is available for free as a pdf by clicking:
If you are new, you might read the section "Introduction" 1.5 pages and "How to Use this Book" 3.5 pages and Section 1 "Contour and Gesture just the first 2.5 pages.
This is a "Working plan for Art Study" which Kimon Nicolaides taught at the Art Students League before his death in 1938 and the mother of Karen Carmean took his class and loved it.
