Drawing for Absolute Beginners
Registration Status: Check Availability
Session Dates: June 06, 2018 - August 08, 2018
Never taken a drawing class before? Feel rusty or simply lack confidence? This course - our most popular offering - is designed for you. You'll draw from life and from art reproductions. Beginning with a simple contour, you will use line to translate a variety of shapes, from the still life to the figure. Learn to see like an artist, and to develop form and space working shading, negative shapes and rules of perspective. Understand what makes a strong composition. Work in black and white with pencils, charcoal and ink. You will engage in informal and encouraging individual and group critiques.
Meets Weekly Wednesday 6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Registration begins May 1st. Students MUST enroll 5 business days prior to the course start date. Early bird promotion: $25 registration fee will be waived if you register before May 11.
Please read: Bring a large 18 x 24 inch rough newsprint pad, a soft cloth or chamois and soft willow charcoal to first class. A supply list will be available at the first class. Please bring a $30 model fee, payable to the instructor, to the first class.
