"The Art and Science of Drawing"
Drawing is part scientific exploration and part creative act. This workshop clearly defines the rules behind representational drawing but also explores the opportunities for expression within them. Brent puts the myth of talent to rest by demystifying the thought processes behind good drawing while encouraging each student to experiment within those rules. Students are challenged to explore any blocks they might have that keep them from producing successful drawings and taught new methods of thinking about the drawing process.
October 2 - November 6 / Thursdays from 2-4 p.m.
$125 for all six sessions  REGISTER HERE

"Mastering the Fundamentals of Figure Drawing and an Introduction to the Human Anatomy for the Artist"
This ONGOING CLASS takes a deeper look into the essential skeletal and muscular systems of the body from a drawing perspective.   Each week a new muscle or bone group will be studied through demonstration drawings, examinations of a live model and time for students to draw.  Students will gain a wider  understanding of the human body in figure drawing which can be applied immediately to their own drawings as well as give them a foundation for further anatomical study.
Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9-noon.
$25 per session plus modeling fee (payable weekly in class   REGISTER HERE

Don't miss this rare opportunity to spend two full days painting with one of the north coast's most beloved and accomplished painters. Jim will begin his workshop at ESA on Saturday morning by talking about his process and giving a painting demo. In the afternoon, students will paint outdoors at a location in Eureka. On Sunday, students will meet in Trinidad for a full day of plein air painting. Jim will help each artist understand how to see values, warm and cool color and light.
