This is a four-week drawing class exploring the basics of seeing and making images. We will be using soft charcoal on paper and learning about line, shade, composition, contrast, and movement. Bring your curiosity and come draw with us!
Week 1: Paper bags and household objects – We will explore line and shade, light and dark
Week 2: Objects from nature – We will focus on texture and contrast
Week 3: Still life and the (clothed) figure – We will concentrate on composition, movement, and negative space
Week 4: Faces and Landscapes – refining what we know and creating final pieces for critique, and possible final show
Drawing for Beginners will run for 4 weeks in January, Thursdays, 5:30-7:00pm. The price of $60 includes all 4 weeks. The class is suitable for ages 10 to adult.
