    Try A Free Class At Laafa!

    Have you ever studied art in a studio environment using objects, casts or live models? At LAAFA we understand that those of you who have not yet tried it, don’t know how satisfying can be! Perhaps you are more advanced, but have never studied here at LAAFA. For those reasons we offer the opportunity to take a test drive and get a taste of the LAAFA experience with our FREE classes and workshops


    Free Drawing Class Apr 25th

    Online Class Registration Deadlines - Don't miss out!

    This Free Instructed Class is for people who are new to LAAFA, and have never studied with us before (one free class per person). The free drawing class will encourage you to see with your eyes and to draw with your hand. Instruction will be given in simple shading, lighting, core shadows, and learning to draw through an object. This is an excellent opportunity for students with little to no formal drawing training at all. Learning to translate what you see to paper is an exercise that will challenge you in new ways, keeping your brain and your imagination piqued. Come give it a try!


    Bring your 18x24 pad of newsprint, some charcoal, a graphite pencil, a kneaded eraser, your right brain, and enjoy a class on the house. Our hope is that you realize how important art can be in your life, for without it we merely exist.


    More experienced artists can also benefit from one of these classes. Bring along your work, and during the class, our instructor will take some one-on-one time with you to give you a free portfolio review. Find out where you are with your skill level, and where you can go!

    Its not too late to register for these classes!

    ITS NOT TOO LATE TO REGISTER FOR THESE CLASSES!

    #101 - Basic Drawing Fundamentals

    Instructor: Eric Pedersen
    Saturday, 1pm-4pm
    Cost: $350 ($250 for new comers to the school!)


    Online Class Registration Deadlines - Don't miss out!

    This course introduces the fundamentals of drawing. How to hold a charcoal pencil, simple shapes, volumes, c-curves, s-curves, straights, edges, 4-value system, thumbnails, introductory composition, light sources, core shadows, reflective lights, are all covered in this course. This is an excellent course for students with little to no formal drawing training at all, or those wanting a refresher course in the basics. Great class for beginners!

    #122 - Sketching the Figure

    Instructor: Sergio Sanchez
    Tuesday, 7pm-10pm
    Cost: $495

    Online Class Registration Deadlines - Don't miss out!

    The student will receive study in drawing the head and figure, using quick-sketch and longer pose study of the figure and head. This is a broad overview of the many aspects of drawing the figure.

    #324 - Figure Quick Sculpt

    Instructor: David Simon
    Tuesday, 7pm-10pm
    Cost: $475


    Online Class Registration Deadlines - Don't miss out!

    If you are a new student to sculpture, Figure Quick Sculpt is a great intro class to that material. In this setting, you will be more focused on capturing the gesture with clay.

    Students are taken from three to nine-hour poses, with the emphasis being on the mass concepts of the body and breaking the figure down into geometric shapes. Gesture and Composition is the mainstay of this fast paced high-energy class. Improvement through repetition is the beauty of this course. This course is also terrific if you are having problems understanding the large masses of the body in your drawings or paintings.

    If you would like to register for any of these classes, call 818.708.9232! Ask about our new student discounts!
