Take this class with Lury Norris to really improve and polish your level of accuracy with your subjects, whether they are 2-D subjects (using photo references) or 3-D subjects (from life). You can be a beginner or experienced artist. This class will give you the freedom to choose the level of accuracy and realism you would like to use in your work by giving you the skill set to have that choice. We will be using Bargue plates and plaster casts in our process. Lury looks forward to working with you! $45 per class.
