We may work on different ways to draw: contour and gesture drawing, drawing mass, drawing big, shading and stuff to draw with like colored pencils, pastels, ink. We will decide on the first class how we want to proceed and take it from there.
There is no charge, but everyone is expected to help with the group- we have no instructor: this is a learn-by-doing group.​Levels:
Our program has suggested levels to help guide you in your choices: In-House, designed for 
those just starting out and Invited Artists for those in need of a challenge. 
In-house workshops are for those individuals who are new to a particular medium, are new to taking workshops on the specific topic, or who may need/want a refresher before going on to more challenging levels of workshops.
Invited Artists are for artists who wish to expand their experience in a particular medium, have taken workshops in this medium before, or have been practicing for at least a year or two years, in a variety of media. 
New members to the Gimli Art Club are not restricted in their choices in selection of workshops.

Registration and Fee Payments:
Fees for workshops/lessons MUST BE PAID IN ADVANCE.  
The deadline for registration payment is  is 2 weeks prior. Workshops that have low registration may be cancelled. “Registration” means that your Cheque is in the envelope and your name on the list.  
Put a separate Cheque for each workshop or lesson series in the envelope specially marked for the selected sessions.
Write your name on the list, and put a check mark in the “Paid” column.  
All supplies for workshops and lessons are the responsibility of the participant 
unless it specifically states that supplies are included in the workshop fee.

Drawing Group
Monday, 1 to 4 pm - Starts Monday, September 26
Since we have 3 hours I am thinking we could work for the first couple of hours and then have a loose final hour that is a bit more social.

We may work on different ways to draw: contour and gesture drawing, drawing mass, drawing big, shading and stuff to draw with like colored pencils, pastels, ink. We will decide on the first class how we want to proceed and take it from there.

There is no charge, but everyone is expected to help with the group- we have no instructor: this is a learn-by-doing group.
