ClassGraphic Mondays, 7-9:30pm | Drawing is an extremely rewarding and challenging activity that requires a logical sequence of drawing principals. This course will cover the most important aspect of drawing: How to observe three dimensional forms. Learning how to block in a drawing will be a key factor in the success of a drawing. A focus will be placed on studies to increase our skills. The goal of this course is to expand on the artist’s natural ability through fundamental skills and practice. Students will sketch from various still life set ups. Artists may also bring in objects of interest to sketch from. Each student will be taught according to their skill level.
