About This Activity

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, March 1, 2022.

Learning to draw or 'see' is knowing what to actively look for. In this online class, you will focus on four key concepts that will stimulate your curiosity and focus; and improve your drawing abilities in a step-by-step manner. From the start you’ll learn how to think of your subject in terms of the composition and how to make a strong start with an approach called the 'Block-in.' You will learn to see and draw the proportions of objects and their relationships to other objects. Develop an eye for perspective to create the illusion of depth, and gain skill in creating gradations of tone and create the illusion of light and shadow. Lecture followed by detailed demos will help you apply these concepts right away giving you more confidence and ability to create more insightful, beautiful, expressive drawings!
