Continuing Education . Life Drawing Classes 

Life Drawing Classes

Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced artist, pay-as-you-go life drawing sessions allow you to develop or refine your life drawing skills. With a per-session limit of 25 attendees, these intimate life drawing sessions allow you to draw the figure at your own pace and receive individual critique from the moderator.

CIA provides the model and the moderator. You provide your own drawing supplies.

Life Drawing sessions are facilitated by Eddie Mitchell

Eddie Mitchell received his BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in painting and drawing in 1987. While having maintained a full-time studio for the past 26 years, Eddie has taught art classes at Lakeland Community College for the past 19 years. His work is represented in several galleries across the country. Eddie has been in over 150 art shows, created numerous commissioned pieces for public locations, and to this point, he has sold over 1,000 paintings.
