Evening & Saturday
Spring 2015 -

Ink Drawing


Several courses in drawing, painting and sculpture are offered in the evenings and on Saturdays during both the regular semesters and during the Summer Session. These classes can count as part of the semester for full-time enrolled students, but are also open to members of the public who do not wish to commit themselves to a full-time program. Models and instructors are present at each class and the faculty are rotated on a yearly basis.

Evening and Saturday programs offer classes in the specific disciplines the School excels in, as well as concentrated courses on aspects of one, such as watercolor or landscape painting, or figure sculpture.
