Winter 2020 Classes and Workshops at Washington Studio School
WSS is pleased to announce our Winter Term schedule of classes and workshops. Choose from over 30 classes and workshops designed for artists of all levels. In addition to beginning-to-advanced level drawing, painting and sculpture classes, WSS also offers winter classes and workshops focused around working in series, keeping a sketchbook, linear perspective, life drawing for high school teens and many more. Highlights include:

  • ‘Translations,’ a 10-week class that channels the thought processes and working methods of artists whose work starts with an idea, or concept, which is then translated to visible response through marks,
  • ‘The Contemporary Portrait,’ a 10-week class that will study the structure, planes, color temperature and the organization of value shapes that make up the portrait in space,
  • and ‘Seeing Without Looking,’ a daylong workshop on Sunday, March 15 that will prompt students to see the world with clarity and specificity through blind contour drawing.
