How to Draw

January 14, 2022



This is an ideal course for people with little or no experience in drawing. The course involves drawing from direct observation with an emphasis on the line quality, value, shading, negative space and perspective. Students will create texture in their drawings as they explore the aesthetics of mark making. The skills necessary to make a good drawing are developed through basic materials such as pencils and charcoal. Source material will include still life arrangements, working from nature, a live model and photographs. Course will also include a field trip so students can experience drawing on location.
