November 7 & 8

It’s not all pies, pies, and more pies! Celebrate Wayne Thiebaud's 100th birthday with one, two, or three classes that explore all aspects of his unique draftsmanship. In Figurative Drawing, explore some of the artist’s lesser known works, as seen in Wayne Thiebaud 100: Paintings, Prints, and Drawings. Then, learn contour and gesture drawing using pencil and charcoal before creating your own work on paper. Please note, participants must supply the following materials: a kneaded eraser, vine charcoal, and HB, 3B, 6B pencils. Registration closes November 7 at 11 AM.

Want to learn more about Wayne Thiebuad’s catchy — and at times, mouthwatering — style? Try the other classes in the series: Shapes and Form or Color and Composition.
