This concentrated class of fi ve weeks is open to all who wish to develop or advance their drawing skills. Focus will be on the basic visual elements of line, shape, texture, and value. The importance of good design will be stressed as it applies to composition involving still life, landscape, portrait, and figure subject matters. During class time, advanced students will be encouraged to explore other drawing tools, but not charcoal or chalk pastels. Completion of assignments outside of class will be expected.

Leon LeBeau has been teaching drawing and watercolor to SOAR participants since the beginning of the SOAR program; he has also instructed art classes at the Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg and at the For Art’s Sake Gallery in Malone. Leon has participated in numerous exhibits in the North Country and the Adirondacks.

NOTE: Participants will need a #2 pencil, a drawing pad no smaller than 9”X12” and a white plastic eraser - all available locally.
