A Beginning Drawing Class

Anyone can learn to draw. It is just a matter of really seeing what is in front of you. In this beginning drawing class you will learn the fundamentals of realistically rendering what you see. You’ll study line, shape, form, light and shade as they relate to the world around us. You’ll learn to interpret objects through their basic geometric shapes – a principle which will allow you to draw anything you wish. You will also master the principles of perspective as they relate to all compositions. We’ll use a variety of drawing media to render the still life and other compositions of interest. Through careful observation of light and dark, you will learn to translate color into successful black and white drawings. This class is for both beginners and those who wish to refresh their drawing skills.

Materials: Drawing pencils (ebony) and charcoal pencils; charcoal: vine and compressed; kneaded and pink erasers; 16 x 24 newsprint pad; additional materials will be announced in class.
