Utilizing mindfulness techniques to complement the creative process, this class will provide students with an introduction to still life drawing from various setups using graphite pencils. The focus will be on learning various drawing techniques of line, form, shading, value, composition, negative and positive space. Simple step by step exercises will open the door for a fun creative experience that can be applied to toy figures, stuffed animals, or any other objects of choice. Material lists will be available online.
