Sat. 10am - 1pm
We have structured this foundation drawing class so that many different skill levels from absolute beginner to intermediate artist can participate. Drawing students will start the class with basic drawing exercises along with explaining drawing materials and how to use them to achieve ultimate results.
You will work on 6 projects throughout the course of this class:
Project 1: Sphere and fruit in graphite on white paper using photo reference
Project 2: Sphere and fruit in charcoal on white paper using photo reference
Project 3: Comparative Measurement – Still life drawing with 2 simple objects
Project 4: A New Setup with 3 objects
Project 5: A New Setup with 4-5 objects (Tonal Drawing)
Project 6: Introduction to human or other forms (cast/skull/figure/portrait/animal)
We will spend time drawing the basic forms from a still life set up using direct lighting to help you understand value. You will learn how to see these same basic forms when you draw more complex objects. You will learn about proper proportions and relationships. We will cover eye level and foundation perspective, explore line and values, direct lighting and cast shadows as well as soft and hard edges. You will be given lots of one on one instruction with plenty of demonstrations to guide you through the different elements of good drawing.
