Drawing is the basis for MANY art forms, and no matter what your favorite, it is good practice to DRAW! This series is designed to be a thorough overview of drawing techniques and materials, as well as a review of basic art elements. We’ll move from work with still objects to work with live models, while experiencing various drawing materials. More advanced exercises will be incorporated for participants who are more experienced or who have previously taken the series. Outside assignments will be recommended and all work will be evaluated.
