In this five week class, students will learn to draw from observation using both the traditional and the contemporary way. Through concentration on the uses of line, proportion, perspective, value and form, students will be given the foundations of drawing techniques and skills. The course will concentrate heavily on experimentation and development from one drawing to the next, using mediums such as vine charcoal, compressed charcoal, and ink. No previous drawing experience is required.
