This class provides a rare opportunity to experience the museum as an artist when the Scottsdale Artists’ School (SAS) brings instructor Jerry Salinas into our galleries for observational drawing from the Masters of the West. With a few drawing materials, students can enjoy 6 hours of drawing in one of the galleries where they can explore drawing techniques from expressive gesture drawing to tips on creating a three-dimensional drawing with guidance from an instructor. The class begins with a discussion on drawing materials, and then explores positive and negative space, seeing values and edges as well as tips on using the form to draw objects. Students new to drawing or who wish to have an organized approach to drawing should expect their work to improve during the course of this session.
Pre-registration with Scottsdale Artists’ School is required, tuition $95 + $10 materials fee.
