Description

In this drawing class, the focus will be on the following concepts: learning to see form and value, developing accurate proportional relationships, perspective, shading, and composition. Each week, we will work on a different drawing problem that addresses one of the above concepts. You may work in the medium of your choice: pencil, charcoal, monochromatic watercolor, or pen & ink. Demonstrations will be given in a different medium each week and you may choose to work in the medium demonstrated, or another of your choice.
