Find the FUN in drawing fundamentals and, with professional materials, take your drawing skills up a notch.
Each week is a new drawing adventure as we cover drawing concepts such as light, value, shading, and line with professional drawing materials. A drawing exploration of gesture, observation, and experimentation nurtures every skill set from beginner to advanced.
Students will create a sample drawing portfolio including a still-life drawing from observation, gesture drawings, and a final drawing that explores light and shadow. All work will be done on paper with professional drawing materials.
Students can bring drawing materials from home to experiment with, but we will have materials for them to use.
