Figure and Portrait Classes

Deb Danziger

El Cerrito artist Deb Danziger, who received her MFA in painting from the New York Academy of Art, will teach Figure Drawing, Figure Painting, and Portrait Drawing classes through West Contra Costa Adult Education beginning the last week of February. Classes are for students at all levels and offer a grounding in technical skills while allowing for students to grow at their own pace and ability. Students will work from a live model in the figure drawing and figure painting classes and take turns being the model in portrait drawing classes. The upcoming session runs for six weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays as follows:

Figure Painting -Tuesdays from 10 am – 1 pm (beginning on 2/24);

Portrait drawing – Tuesdays from 2 pm – 5 pm (beginning on 2/24);

Figure Drawing – Thursdays from 2 pm – 5 pm (beginning on 2/26).

Classes cost $75 for the six week session, plus model fees where applicable. For more information and to sign up for classes, please visit the West Contra Costa Adult Education websiteYou can also see more of Deb’s work and a sample of student work on her website:

About Heidi Rand
I am a nature photographer. I use my photos of orchids, roses, native plants, butterflies, hummingbirds and much more to create painterly images and blended collages and designs. I love to use alternative photo and art techniques, such as printing directly or transferring to fabrics, metal, wood, glass and other surfaces. I make a wide range of useful and decorative things from my artwork. I show my work and teach workshops at my studio by appointment in El Cerrito.

    Thanks for posting this Heidi! And for anyone who is interested, the figure painting and drawing classes are a great way to work from a live model, at your own pace and level, while having some guidance & instruction from a teacher. I hope to see some people there!
