Seth Havercamp Classes in Falls Church




Happy New Year!


Seth Havercamp is teaching again beginning in January / February 2012.  I'll be going to his starter sessions in January. Hope to see some of you there! 

Portrait in Pencil

Class description: This first session is 4 weeks long. For the first 3 weeks we will work
on one portrait in pencil -- same person, same pose. By allowing ourselves to spend
ample time on one drawing, we will start with a simple block-in of features, to develop
the likeness, then proceed to place in the subtle nuances and details that make a portrait
complete. There is no prerequisite for this class.

When: Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:30 pm. Starts February 7th

Materials: Fine drawing paper; pencils: 2h, 2b, 4b, kneaded eraser

Where: The “Warehouse Atelier”, located in the strip center corner of route 7 and Carlin
Springs Rd, Falls Church 22041 ( Behind REI on Carlin Springs and behind Blinds to
Go on Route 7, ground level)

Cost: $185

*Space is limited to 8 people per class*

This class leads us directly into the next 4 week session. We will transfer the drawing
to canvas and proceed to paint it in oil. By having the drawing already complete we will
be able to paint the portrait in full color with less difficulty, not having to “chase the
drawing.” While the 2nd session is set up as a continuation of the 1st, anyone may enroll
in the 2nd session.

Figure in Pencil

Class description: Same as above, except learning to draw a full nude figure.

When: Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:30 pm. Starts February 8th, 4 weeks.

Materials: Fine drawing paper, pencils, 2h to 4b, kneaded eraser

Where: The “Warehouse Atelier”

Cost: $185

*Space is limited to 8 people per class*


Free Classes!

As an incentive to continuing enrollment I will be offering 2 free classes at the end of January. The first will be on Tuesday the 24th of January. The 2nd will be on Wednesday February 1st. They will be figure painting classes. All are welcome! I will ask for a 10 dollar contribution to pay for the model.
