Session Dates: October 05, 2017 - December 14, 2017
Never taken a drawing class before? Feel rusty or simply lack confidence? This course - our most popular offering - is designed for you. Beginning with a simple contour, you will use line to translate a variety of shapes, from the still life to the figure. You'll draw from life and from art reproductions. 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. Take a chance. Push the contrasts for a more dramatic image. Work in black and white with pencils, charcoal and ink. We'll engage in informal and encouraging individual and group critiques. Bring a large 18 x 24 inch drawing pad, ebony pencil, and eraser to the 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. A supply list will be available at the first class.
