Learn to Draw I
11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Thursdays, Jan. 10, 17, 24 & 31, at Equinox Village
This class will teach the all-important skill of observation - really seeing the objects being drawn - along with developing the ability to transfer what you see to paper. Instructor Tony Conner will begin by teaching participants to see and draw basic shapes (circles, squares, rectangles and triangles) and to turn these into more complex shapes and objects. Included in the class will also be the basics of size, proportion and perspective. Classes are free for Equinox Village residents and $50 for members of the public. To register and for information regarding materials, go to http://tonyconner .com/classes-workshops or call (802) 375-5548.
