This class focuses on drawing skills and techniques. You will learn how to break down your subject into basic shapes and draw what you see. We begin with a series of timed warm up sketches and then proceed into complete drawing lessons focusing on form, shading, highlighting and composition. You will learn the basic tools and materials you may want to use for your drawings and discuss the advantages of each. We will work on toned and white paper in a variety of sketching mediums. My goal is for students, by the end of this course, to be able to take the skills they've learned and apply them to any subject matter so they can draw what they see accurately and with confidence.
With nearly 8 hours of step-by-step instruction you will learn the fundamentals of drawing and sketching people, animals, landscapes and still life.
For those who want more than just the basics, the second section of this course explores bridging media, so you can begin to incorporate color into your drawings. These lessons get you ready to cross over to painting if you choose!
