Students will hone their observational skills for better drawing techniques through studies in line, value, perspective, texture, proportion, foreshortening, gestural drawing, and learn how to work with different drawing materials. This class is great for beginners as well as students who wish to brush up their drawing skills. We will work mostly from life, and look at how master artists utilize these concepts in their work.
