Drawing from Observation | Zoom | March 10
Two Part Series (take one or both)
Explore the basics of drawing in a tranquil environment while learning at your own pace with plenty of instructor support. Fine tune your skills through practice and observation. Class exercises will clarify general drawing materials, pencil contour techniques, shading and value skills, a variety of perspective methods, and will teach participants to “see” and reproduce a realistic subject as a work of art on paper. Build confidence as you challenge yourself to create beautiful art from weekly lessons. These classes are perfect for those new to the subject of drawing as well as the experienced artist who would like to review and expand upon many important concepts. Skills learned will support future 2-dimentional art classes.
