Overview

DRAWING FOR THE NOVICE

WEDNESDAY 9:30 – NOON I JAN 16 – MAR 20 (10 WKS)

BEGINNER with Deanna Clucus  – For those who think that the only people who can draw are those born with that “gift”; guess again.  If you have never progressed beyond the drawings you did in grade school, this class should help you gain those skills. If you are already a painter, this class will help refine your drawing skills and gain confidence. Through a series of exercises, students will be taught how to really see what they are drawing.  Students will need to bring a 2″ 3-ring binder for handouts and commit to spending 10 weeks learning to do something you never thought you could do. A $25 material fee is included in the final price.  M $165 NM $190

Minimum class size is six. If this class size is not reached by January 4th, student will be contacted and refunds will be issued.

Deanna Clucus Biography


As a realistic to abstract watercolor and acrylic artist and instructor, Deanna Clucas has been painting since childhood and steadily since 1989 and shows and sells her work in 20+ juried shows a year.

Taking ongoing watercolor and acrylic classes and workshops since 1989 from the area’s finest artists keeps her work fresh.
