BCC to Offer Drawing Workshops in South County
May 20, 2013
Berkshire Community College (BCC) will offer the following drawing workshops at its South County Center in Great Barrington this summer.

"The Soul of the Portrait: Basics to Advanced Portrait Drawing (WKS-1588) covers in bite-sized, accessible forms, all the tools students need to draw from life with inspiration and confidence. Beginning with simple anatomy for artists, this workshop will teach creating the illusion of three-dimensional reality on a two-dimensional plane, designing brilliant compositions, and capturing the spirit of your model. All are welcome, beginners through experienced artists! Classes meet Tuesdays, June 11 through July 30, from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM. Cost for registration is $185.

"Drawing I" (WKS-1631) enables artists, through observation of nature, to translate the 3-dimensional world to a 2 dimensional plane. Learning to see the play of light and dark on surfaces, developing an awareness of spatial relations and depth, and recognizing proportions will be emphasized. Simple and basic techniques using varying materials will help participants enjoy drawing from nature. Landscapes, still life, figures and animal drawing will be explored. Classes, taught by Pamela Berkeley, meet Thursdays, June 13 through July 25, from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM. Cost for registration is $150.

For more information, or to register, call BCC's South County Center at 413-236-5201 or 5202. For long distance (in Mass only), call 800-816-1233, ext. 5201 or 5202.
