Anyone Can Draw

February 28, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:30pm on Wednesday, repeating until March 21, 2018


AT LIFELONG (8 sessions starting 1/31, $40)  Class size cap 12

Well, almost anyone can draw….. Some folks simply cannot let go of their fears about drawing, and a few struggle to copy a simple line, but in my experience, almost anyone can learn to draw. It means acquiring a new way of seeing and a good deal of serious work, but for students willing to persevere the rewards are worth the effort. Through a series of graduated exercises, we will move from simple linear work through to portraiture in the course of eight weeks. It will be a challenge but it will also be lots of fun.

Instructor: Tom Butler (Yale, 1971), enjoyed a 40-year teaching career at a variety of independent schools in New York & Connecticut. Specializing in history and economics, he also ventured into English, psychology, law, math and school administration. Tom has taught at Lifelong since 2011, recently adding teaching drawing to his repertoire. Tom has primarily worked in 3-dimensional collage, but has had a variety of training in two dimensional art forms.
