Art Gym partners with like-minded organizations and guest teachers to offer continuing education opportunities to our members and outside artists.
Art Gym members can also use our space to teach their own workshops. We provide this service to support members in their teaching careers. (scroll down to see Member-Taught Workshops)

Guest Artist Workshops
• Back To Basics: Drawing with Confidence with Susan Rubin and Marjorie Leggitt
This fun four-day workshop, returns to the drawing basics of Line, Shading, Perspective, and Composition to bolster your drawing skills and boost your confidence. Susan and Marjorie will guide you through specific steps to better drawing. Understand how to “see like an artist” and activate your artistic intuition to draw line correctly the first time. Revisit the principles of light, form, and depth to flesh out compositions both big and small. Practice linear and aerial perspective to accurately portray physical and atmospheric depth. Develop composition strategies to create dynamic artwork. We’ll challenge and delight you with subjects large and small, indoors and out. Instruction, exercises, practice, and individual guidance will assure that in just four days you’ll firm up those shaky skills and draw anything better and faster every time.
