Tilton Learn drawing

If you have a desire to learn how to draw but feel you just don’t have the talent, Lakes Region Art Association and Gallery drawing instructor, Tom Hitchcock, will allay your fears and teach you how. “Drawing is transferring to paper or to any substrate nothing more than what you see, plus a simple understanding of perspective, and light and shadow,” says Hitchcock. “Once you’ve developed your ability to draw, you’re on your way to becoming an accomplished artist” he added. Hitchcock’s professional experience includes being a fine art artist, photographer and graphic designer. He’s also owned an advertising and direct marketing agency located on Madison Avenue in NYC. Hitchcock’s six-week drawing classes are held every Saturday, beginning March 2, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Lakes Region Art Association and Gallery, Tanger Outlet, Suite 132, 120, Laconia Road, Tilton. His class is limited in size and for adults. For cost and to register, visit the LRAA Gallery and sign-up, or contact 496-6768.
