The Brick presents
Chill and Draw 🙂
with River L. Ramirez
at Brick Aux – 628 Metropolitan Ave
$20 per session
Drawing has been around since the literal beginning of mankind. Fucking hieroglyphics, cave paintings… stars? Need I say more? Come join me every week and LETS DRAW SOMETHING TOGETHER!
By learning basic mark making technique’s like drawing a person, a face, a body, etc. We learn various forms of line work like : cross hatching, stippling, shading, and more, you will be able to conjure up your innermost desires with ease. Perhaps you want to learn to capture the image of your favorite bird, or to depict an idea for your latest performance, to storyboard for a movie, or to invent a totally new landscape for fun. Whatever your reason, we practice it together with a new drawing every week. Can’t wait to draw together!
All levels welcome 🙂
Some materials provided, bring your own if you wish is to create more complex pieces. We will provide drawing boards, paper, and pencils.
Please email email@example.com if you would like to take the class but money is a barrier.
