The Pointe-Saint-Charles Art School offers a variety of drawing classes and workshops for students of all levels and walks of life.
NEW ongoing class
Appropriate for artists of all levels, this class will ask students to push the boundaries of what can be done with simple drawing tools. Different techniques for blending, texture, and line-making employ a painterly approach to drawing that creates a space for artists to figure things out as they go, inserting concept and emotion into recognizable scenes. It will encourage experimentation with layering, representation, and abstraction, and students will draw content from their mind’s eye as much as from their seeing eyes.

Drawing – Techniques and Expression
Drawing is a way of seeing and a way of experiencing the world. Drawing techniques help us transfer into images how we each, as individuals, observe and feel about the world around us. This ongoing class is for all levels from introductory to advanced. Drawing techniques will be taught through observational studies with an emphasis on line quality, tone and values, composition and perspective. Self-expression will be encouraged through enjoyable exercises designed to encourage the students to discover a personal style and a way of expressing what particularly interests them.

This class offers techniques and strategies for putting on paper our visual experience.
Learn to look around and notice lines, shapes, textures, contrasts—and then draw what
you see, and what you remember. Perspective, structure, space, and shadows can be fun
to draw. Understand how space works on a flat surface, and create that space in your own
drawings. If you are interested in developing your ability to draw light and shadow, this
class is for you. Subjects include still life, nature, the human figure, interiors, landscapes,
city views, portraits. For beginners through advanced students.
