What you'll learn in this beginner drawing class:

This is the perfect introductory class to the important skill of traditional drawing which is the most useful craft in the visual arts. We will work on classical principle techniques for achieving accurate proportion & a comprehensive approach to linear perspective. 

Explore the eye for line- form theory & study tone in still-life arrangements, using a combination of pencils, charcoal or inks. Practical exercises on how to draw using the right side of the brain, how to draw curves, use contour technique & straight line approximation technique, the essentials of drawing ellipses, drawing a cylinder, hemispheres & how to employ horizontal lines & vanishing points, & how to use cross contours to give your drawings a sense of volume and accuracy. 

Study how to use the midpoint establishment to ensure the two major halves or your drawing are accurate- these classic exercises help you learn how to see shape and form in your own way and create strong compositions and confidence in sketching. In the last few weeks of the course, we will put together all the techniques to create more ambitious accurate finished drawings.
