Drawing is the basic language that an artist uses in order to create any work of art. This class is designed for students in their first year of Drawing. Skills from direct observation of the figure, still-life, landscape, and architectural forms will be emphasized along with further understanding of design principles, critical thinking and problem solving. These concepts will be introduced and illustrated throughout the course through the exposure and analysis of movements associated in art history. A variety of drawing techniques and media will be explored, including pencil, ink, charcoal, and pastel. A fee for materials may be required.
