DRAW LIKE PICASSO
Pablo Picasso said, "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." In this class, we will get in touch with our inner creative child while exploring Picasso's fascinating life and art. In each class, we'll create a fun, unique drawing or painting based on work from one of Picasso's creative prolific periods (i.e. blue, cubist, Dora Maar or "surreal" and neo-classical).
Art supplies are included in the class enrollment fee.

3WN: How did you get started in this industry?
David: I began drawing at a very young age, it was something I was innately interested in. As a kid, I loved copying cartoons from the daily comic strips. In class, I would daydream and draw to escape the tedious lessons and unhappier aspects of childhood, but mainly for the love of drawing.
During high school, I discovered a natural ability to draw caricatures, much to the discontent of my subjects, to put it mildly. By the time I entered college and art school I began painting and looking at artists in museums. I studied art and illustration and soon found my work published in magazines while receiving awards and recognition for my fine art paintings. In a word, art has been my constant companion.
3WN: What is your teaching philosophy?
David: As an art student I had many wonderful teachers who shared their knowledge and these are things I would like to pass on to my students. Beginning with an introduction to basic techniques and materials used for creating a drawing or painting. I also like to exchange ideas with my students and listen to what they expect to learn and achieve.
I have lots of plants, which I take good care of, watching as they blossom and grow. My approach to teaching is similar; nurture my students, encourage them and watch them grow.
