The Greenpoint-based community art studio Eckford Street Studio (70 Eckford St.) is offering drawing classes for adults beginning next week.


The “drawing from observation” class starts on Monday, July 15, and meets once per week through August 12th. The five-week class is $250 and all skill levels are welcome and materials are provided; register here. The class description:

Enhance your drawings by developing your observation skills.  In this five-session class, we will practice looking deeply and creating mindfully. We will look at our surroundings in new ways and translate what we see into sketches and drawings using a variety of drawing materials. Strengthening our observational skills gives us more information and allows us to draw with intention, making artwork that is uniquely our own. Enjoy a relaxed, nonjudgmental class; all levels welcomed and encouraged to come.


For those looking for a one-off or weekly drawing session, Eckford Street Studio offers a BYOB figure drawing session with a live model that happens on most Tuesdays from 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. and participants provide their own supplies.

Another five-week class, the “essentials of acrylic painting” is also in the works, which would tentatively meet on Wednesday nights; details for the acrylic painting class are still in the works.
