This class is for a beginner or the artist who wants to expand on the basic elements of drawing to bolster confidence in their art. The class starts with a review of the basics – line, comparative measurements, etc. Using a variety of lighting techniques, the student then learns to strengthen their understanding of tonal relationships to create depth in their artwork. In addition, students work on creating strong, engaging compositions and pictorial design. There is plenty of individual attention and constructive critiques. Although the class is taught using graphite and charcoal, these exercises are valuable for artists who work in other mediums. This class is limited to 6 students.
