Gov't Protocols

Drawing Series is more than learning the basics of drawing. Though it does do just that, it also proposes a drawing challenge to all; beginner and experienced alike. This four session two-hour class series takes an accumulative learning approach.

Learning to Look:  We start with the fundamental principles and techniques of drawing, including the elements of shape, line, value/tone, and perspective. After which each class will build on the teachings of the previous session.

Class lessons will include:

  • complex shape construction
  • 1-pt and 2-pt linear/3d-depth/aerial perspective
  • comparative/proportional sighting
  • composition/placement of elements/points of view
  • line of action
  • short art historical slide presentations

Areas of Study: The fundamentals learned during each class will then be applied to three areas of study:

  • sight-based – blocks, still-life, figurative
  • photo work – building, landscape, wildlife
  • imaginative – cartooning, comic art and sequential storytelling

One session will be an introduction to figurative drawing. There will be a live model.

Drawing Challenge: In addition to class time work, there will be a significant drawing challenge put forth as assigned homework.

Learn something new. Improve your skills. Wow yourself!
