Learn the fundamentals of composition and drawing, working from still life settings and live models. Through observational drawing, this course will introduce traditional and nontraditional techniques using graphite, charcoal, ink, and other media; you will also investigate how light and shadow create form, content, and mood in a drawing. Class time will focus on technical assistance, hands-on demonstrations, informal critique sessions, and slide talks that provide a historical context of the medium.
Models in the Young Artist Program are clothed or in bathing suit attire. No prerequisite.
“I learned to take constructive criticism from the teacher and other students, and to draw using many different types of mediums and on different surfaces.”
