PRINCETON — The Prairie Arts Council will offer a four-week beginning drawing class for high school age and adults from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays from Feb. 11 to March 4.
This class is offered for the student with little or no drawing experience. In most cases, drawing is a helpful, if not required, skill when composing a painting. Learn how to see things differently, as a teacher Sheila L. Heth guides participants through some drawing techniques.
Participants will learn shading, contouring and other elements of good drawing skills. They should bring an ebony pencil, kneaded eraser, sketching pencil #HB and a 9-by-12-inch sketch book.
Heth has taught art to all ages from kindergarten to adults for almost 30 years. She has won various teaching awards and her students have earned many awards and scholarships for their artwork. Heth’s personal artwork has been seen throughout the world. She is the art teacher at Bureau Valley High School.
The cost of the class is $38 for members and $42 for non-members. The registration deadline is Feb. 6. Register by calling 815-875-2787 or by mail to the Prairie Arts Center, 24 Park Avenue E, Prineton, IL 61356.
