6 weeks of classes with top professionals, including figurative drawing, perspective, still life drawing, basic design & composition, colour theory and intro to painting!

With successful completion of this program, you will have fulfilled the general portfolio requirements for Max the Mutt diploma programs.

This summer, the program will be offered during July and the first 2 weeks of August, a 6 week program, with classes meeting 5 days a week, 3 hours AM and 3 hours PM.

July :

  • 20 Figurative life drawing classes x 3 hours= 60 hours of instruction
  • 10 Perspective classes x 3 hours = 30 hours of instruction
  • 10 Principles of Drawing classes x 3 hours= 30 hours

The last 2 weeks: 5 full days (30 hours) of colour theory, design and composition, and 5 full days (30 hours) Intro to Representational painting.

Total program: 180 hours of instruction

This is a slightly higher cost than the workshop cost ($50 additional for each module). The extra tuition covers personal review meetings with each instructor, grading, a final full review of all the student’s best work, assistance in making portfolio choices, and the certificate award ceremony).

To repeat: Successful completion of this Certificate Program fulfills the general portfolio requirements for application to Max the Mutt Diploma Programs.

This program is offered in conjunction with the July Learn To Draw workshop courses. Learn To Draw workshop classes remain available in modular form….

What’s the difference between Learn To Draw and the Certificate Program?

Learn to Draw students can take one module or all modules. They are not graded, are not subject to attendance and late policies, and personal reviews and final portfolio review are not included.

The certificate program classes as well as the workshops, are designed for people who want to develop basic skills either in the hope of applying to colleges or universities for art based programs, or for personal interest.

Note: international students are allowed to take workshops for up to 6 months with a visitors visa.
