Studio Classes with Diane Cardaci

The Studio Classes are designed for the student with a strong grasp of the basic fundamentals of drawing and shading. All levels of experience are welcome and Diane will work with each student at his/her own level. Each of these?classes will focus on a different topic of interest that will contribute to the overall development of the artist. In all of Diane's classes, sketching from life is encouraged, and so it is recommended to have a digital camera as well as a scanner.
