Tue, June 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EDT

Register Here

A series of classes where participants draw a location and study uses of composition, line, and value to capture the mood and story of a place.

The class will meet on Tuesdays, June 4-25, 10-11:30 am. Weather permitting, be prepared to draw locations outside, along the Saugatuck River and Jesup Green environment.

The instructor, Tim Cronin, has taught drawing and cartooning at Silvermine School of Art, Darien Art Center, and Norwalk Art Space. He is a graduate of NYC’s School of Visual Arts with a BFA in cartooning and illustration. Tim also has had a colorful career as a tattoo artist, illustrator, sign painter, and calligrapher.

This is a wonderful opportunity if you're an artist who wants to improve and stay in shape with their drawing skills, or if you're a beginner looking to try something new. This workshop is also for people that would like to participate in something creative with others. The group will be invited to challenge themselves about how they see, look, think, and create their drawings.

At the beginning of the class, there will be a brief period of instruction. Then as the students work, the instructor will circle around to give individual feedback, help, and encouragement. At the end, the group will share their work with each other and have a discussion.


Space is limited; PLEASE REGISTER. This course is good for ages 13 and up.

Participants are asked to bring their own 11x14 sketchpad (or larger), and charcoal or soft lead pencils.

Note: Class size is limited. There is a registration fee of $25, and registration is for all class sessions. The Westport Library wants to ensure that all interested students are able to participate in Verso University courses. If the registration fee is a barrier to entry for you, please contact [email protected]
