INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED DRAWING (Ages 12 – Adult) These classes are taught and developed by former Friends University instructor Charles Baughman. Charles’ specialty is teaching beginner teens and adults how to draw by improving visual perception skills. Once students are comfortable drawing on their own Charles supports students in developing their personal style. In this class, beginner students will follow a guided drawing or painting while advanced students are free to work on independent studies. Advanced students have the benefit of Charles’ expertise during class times but are welcome to join the more structured lessons as well. Lessons will involve drawing from still life, learning about perspective and proportion. Students will also practice drawing exercises and learn proper media usage to further skills.

The school year is divided into three semesters and you pre-pay for part of the current semester. Decide which day/time you can consistently come to and then attend as many class periods as you can, we will keep track of attendance. If all classes are attended the extra tuition is due at the end of the semester. Missed classes do not need to be “made-up,” as this is a flexible attendance plan. Unused tuition/classes cannot be carried over to a new semester. Enrollment mid-semester is acceptable upon availability. Once camp/class/workshop registration has been completed it is final (after all, registration is how we make hiring, scheduling and supply order decisions). No refunds are granted for missed or unused tuition. If a student is unable to attend an event the tuition may be transferable to another student or camp. This is subject to availability. We reserve the right to combine classes/camps/workshops due to low enrollment or subject compatibility. Semester dates are as follows:
