Explore the fundamentals of drawing in this workshop series! 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 study how to simplify and break down objects as an underdrawing, and explore perspective, shading techniques and color in still life arrangements using a combination of pencils, charcoal and chalk pastel. We will use classic exercises to help you learn how to see shape and form in your own, unique way to create strong compositions and build confidence in your sketching.
