The Art Institute of California-Inland Empire offers life drawing class

(SAN BERNADINO, Calif.) Young artists will learn one of the most important skills in drawing – that of drawing the human body from a live model - when the Art Institute of California – Inland Empire holds its Life Drawing workshop on Saturday, May 17, from 1 - 5 p.m. The workshop will be open at no charge.

Santosh Oomen, academic director of animation of The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire, says, “We are committed to helping artists in the Inland Empire improve their talents. This class, for artists as young as 15 years old, will help them further their development with the skills they need.”

The Life Drawing workshops are usually offered on the third Saturday of every month. There are 21 seats available in each class. Students must bring their own pencils and drawing papers. The workshop is open to the public, those 15 years old or above, and the classes are offered at no charge.

Many people are greatly creative but lack focus,” Oomen says. “This workshop offers people a chance to focus that raw creative talent. Our goal is to help make better artists.”

Oommen says the workshop involves drawing from a live figure and covers topics such as anatomy and gestures. To sign up for the Life Drawing workshop, or for more information, call The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire at (909) 915-2100.
