About the class
Why can’t drawing practice be fun? As creatives, drawing is an integral part of what we do. It takes focused attention to keep in shape with your drawing and yet sitting down to do it can be very difficult. In this class, we will work on making the practice of drawing fun, working together with a variety of tools, subjects (including the human figure), and methods. The best way to elevate your visual senses is to sit down and draw! This class is suitable for those with at least basic drawing skills.
Bring basic drawing supplies: pencil, pen, charcoal (vine and compressed), erasers (kneaded and white), stumps and paper.
When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
