Award winning artist Audene Jay will lead a three-week “Fearless Drawing” course at the Hoffman Center in Manzanita in July. Class sessions will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 2 to 4 p.m., beginning July 13 and running through July 29. Classes will be held in the Hoffman House Studios at 595 Laneda Avenue, in Classroom 7.
Jay described Fearless Drawing as “a course for complete beginners or anyone wishing to improve their drawing skills,” and will teach artists to draw what they see with confidence. “You’ll learn the skills to see as an artist sees, which is the key to drawing with ease,” she added.
The course is limited to eight students and costs $199. The curriculum has a beginning and an end, so a commitment to six sessions, at two sessions per week, is needed to give students the full benefit. Preregistration is required. A $40 materials fee is due at the first class.
