An introductory course to drawing with a focus on drawing from life, working from still-life objects, interiors, the human form, as well as old and contemporary master drawings. Creating a strong composition, a sense of light/dark, an illusion of depth and form that’s in the round will be among our goals as well as tricks for mastering proportion. We will primarily use charcoal and graphite. Collage, color washes and other media options and working on a larger scale will be introduced as options during final project. Beginners and advanced students alike are encouraged to join. Materials included.
