About this event

Through May 31, 2022 (5 sessions) Schedule: Tuesdays, 4- 5:30pm (1.5 hrs per class) Practice different drawing techniques and methods using various materials in a fun, studio environment. Learn about line quality, form, color, negative space and composition while drawing from observation and reference. Participants will have a chance to improve technical and representational skills through a variety of subjects such as still life, the human figure (with a live model), natural/urban landscape and each other. We will look at local and contemporary artists and consider how representation can also be a means of expression. Materials may include dry media such as charcoal, graphite, pastels, color pencil, and wet media such as ink, ink wash and/or watercolor. Join this class and explore your own drawing voice! All levels welcome, differentiated instruction available Instructor: Yael Levy is a mixed media artist, storyteller, printmaker and art teacher based in Berkeley, CA. She draws, paints, collages and writes. She often self publishes her work, and sometimes prints and binds it by hand. She loves playing with forms and format and mixing digital and tactile techniques. Most of Yael’s work is based on her own experience as a brown, bi-racial, bilingual and bisexual woman. She also enjoys telling others’ stories, making up imaginary creatures and just painting images of beautiful nature. She believes the creative process to be its own reward and the act of making an incredible tool for healing and growing. Yael likes to remind people of the artist in them, or at the very least make them smile. Although once in a while the work makes people cry too. Born and raised in Israel, Yael first moved to New York City in 2002 to attend the Art Students League of New York, later completing a BFA of Illustration from Parsons The New School for Design(2011). www.leahyaellevy.com
