Courses Taught

Introduction to Drawing

In this introductory drawing class you will learn basic techniques of drawing from life, still life, places in our immediate environment and each other. This class will focus on the building blocks of drawing such as composition, measurement, line, shape, value, gesture and mark. You will become familiar with a variety of materials and approaches to drawing by studying artwork both historical and contemporary. Although instruction will be rooted in drawing from observation, we will explore the potential to abstract from what we see and experiment with working from memory. Throughout the course we will engage in group discussions. Click here for supply list.
