    Drawing Bootcamp: A complete introductory college drawing course in three days 

    Taught by Alan Larkin, Professor Emeritus Indiana University South Bend

    During a career spanning more than forty years, former IUSB professor, Alan Larkin has won many prizes in regional, national and international competitions for his artwork, including the prestigious Founder’s Award in the 2016 Pastel 100 Competition sponsored by the Pastel Journal and the Best of Show Award at the 75th and 91st Annual Hoosier Salon Exhibition in Indianapolis.  His works are in numerous private collections including the corporate collections of Pillsbury, NIPSCO, and Lincoln Life Insurance Companies.

    This is a condensed version of the observational drawing class that I taught for more than thirty years. It is a survey of the basic skills needed to draw anything you see, strategies to unify these skills, and the acceleration techniques that will help you to become faster without sacrificing accuracy. The class will introduce you to these skills by providing you with exercises that will strengthen them. Backup materials will be available to help you repeat them on your own. A class for complete beginners, but an eye-opening experience for seasoned artists as well. 

    What has often been said about Tolstoy’s War and Peace, that it is a different book each time you read it, is true for this class. Each time you repeat these exercises you gain new insights into the drawing process. And it’s good clean fun too. 

    This class will be limited to 15 Students so reserve your spot soon!
