Don Alexander teaches drawing at Shreveport's Barnwell on Thursdays at 6 from October to January

The act of seeing and drawing what you see is the theme of a twelve-week adult drawing course at Barnwell Art Center, says Freda Powell. The class, aimed at beginners, will be presented Thursdays from 6 pm - 8pm, October 18 to January 10.

Participants will gain a working knowledge of the practical, formal and theoretical aspects of drawing from life, says instructor Don Alexander. He is a retired professor of fine art at Louisiana State University in Shreveport and former professor of fine art at Northwestern State University.

How to draw complex shapes, how to use realistic light and shadow, and how to apply proportion and perspective to create compositions are among his goals. Space is limited.
