The Medina Campus Center of Genesee Community College will once again host Diana (DiDi) Martin as she instructs Drawing 101: Portraits and People. Classes will take place on Thursday afternoons from 1:00-4:00pm. The 10-week session runs on Thursdays from September 15- November 17, 2011. The fee for the workshop is $75.
DiDi Martin has a unique way of enabling students to bring their ideas to the drawing board and then to life, as they learn proportion, shading and line quality. Students in this class will begin with pencil and move on to using pastels as their skills increase. This class will focus on structure and expression. The simple-to-follow format will be geared toward helping people draw people, one of the most challenging aspects of art. Beginner artists are welcomed.
Diana (Di Di) Martin has done extensive commissioned artwork, including a series of baseball cards featured in Sports Illustrated. She teaches drawing and painting both privately and through organizations such as the Kenan Arts Center, Genesee Community College, and at her studio, “The Drawing Room Studio” at 936 Gwinn Street, in Medina.
For more information about this class or to register please call the Medina Campus Center at 585-798-1688, or stop by the GCC Medina Campus.
