Tuesdays, October 5, 12, 19, and 26 from 1 to 3 pm
Online via Zoom.

This class is for anyone who wants to push their observational skills to a new level. Join graphite artist Whitney River as she shares her love of rendering detail in natural forms. In this four-week course, you will learn to combine close observation with improved pencils skills to achieve greater realism in your drawings. Through a variety of shading exercises, master copies, and original compositions, you will begin to recognize subtle value shifts and find fascinating details within your subjects.

Whitney River graduated from Yale University in 1995. Since then she has shown extensively throughout New England, and her drawings and paintings are represented in many private and corporate collections. She is inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds her in Maine, both in the woods and by the ocean. She uses oil on canvas and graphite on paper to render found natural objects with great detail and precision.
