Drawing for Absolute Beginners
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 with negative shapes, rules of perspective, and shading. Work in black and white with pencils, charcoal, and ink. This class emphasizes clear instruction and exercises that move sequentially to build new skills each week. You will receive personal, individualized feedback. Although this class is tailored toward the absolute beginner, all levels are welcome. Bring 5 sheets of 18 x 24" paper; black ebony or 2b pencil; an eraser; and $30 model fee to the first class.
Meets Weekly Tuesday 6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
