Beginning & Intermediate Drawing for Adults Register View Cart

A bunch of arts supplies.

Beginners Class:
This fun, 4-week drawing course will help the beginning artist take their stick figures to a new level.  Foundation principles will be taught so that by the end of this course, students will have the confidence they need to draw what inspires them.  Topics Include:  drawing tools, line & Form, Values, Composition, Contours, Ellipses and Perspective.

Intermediate Class:
This 4-week class builds on what was learned in the beginners class.  It is designed to take the intermediate student to the next phase in their artistic development. Leave those drawing insecurities outside the studio door through a series of drawing exercises. 

Please have a sketch book, graphite pencil kit, pencil sharpener, ruler and kneaded eraser available to you prior to the start of class.

As many of you may have heard, a decision was made at the February 17, 2022 school committee meeting with regard to the use of masks in Chelmsford Public School buildings.

The Chelmsford Public Schools have accepted guidance that will no longer require masks as of Monday, February 28, 2022. We will support an individual's choice to wear a mask and will promote a culture of acceptance and respect in the school community for an individual's need (or choice) to continue to mask.

To help us keep our community safe, please remember that if you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid19, please review the latest guidelines from the CDC to assure you are safe to attend. If you have tested positive for Covid19, a mask MUST be worn in any school building on days 6-10 from the date of a positive test result.

If you have any questions, contact the Commed office and we will be happy to assist you. We can be reached at 978-251-5151 or via email at commed@chelmsford.k12.ma.us
