Open Studio

 


Spring 2022

Sunday, March 13 to Wednesday, June 29, 2022
(Please note that these dates will be confirmed nearer the time, due to ongoing Covid rule changes)

Open Studio is equivalent to a 3-hour private lesson within a group setting.  
Each student works on their individual assignment, at their own skill level and at their own pace. 

Mandy supervises each student in turn, instructing, with hands-on demonstrations and explanations, what needs to be done to correct, improve and advance that specific drawing or painting.

Students choose their assignments together with Mandy according to their particular needs.  This might include working through the Classical Drawing Program, the Classical Painting Program, drawing from photos, portrait practice, foundational skill building or portfolio preparation for grants or entry to higher art education institutions and programs such as Biomedical Illustration or Forensic Anatomy.
