Practice different drawing techniques in a fun, studio environment. We will explore the way that drawing can reflect our individual perspective, through careful observation and exploration of mark-making. Learn about line quality, form, tone, negative space, and composition while drawing from observation and reference using a variety of drawing media. Projects will include linear perspective study, still life, portraits, the figure (with a live model), landscapes, and personal narrative. We will look at local and contemporary artists and consider how representation can also be a means of expression. Join this class and explore your drawing voice! All levels welcome; Instruction provided to meet each student’s interests, needs, and strengths.
