California College of the Arts offers this course as a special opportunity for high school students to develop their drawing skills and experience drawing from a live model. Please note that a model is not employed for the first class meeting. Students spend the first class focusing on a variety of drawing issues in anticipation of drawing from the model. All nine subsequent sessions involve drawing from a nude model.

Bring to first class: 20” x 26” drawing board with clips, 18” x 24” pad of 80 lb weight drawing paper, #4B graphite pencil, two sticks vine charcoal (medium or jumbo size), General's soft charcoal pencil, kneaded eraser, masking (artist's) tape.
