Drawing – Techniques and Expression

Drawing is a way of seeing and a way of experiencing the world. Drawing techniques help us transfer into images how we each, as individuals, observe and feel about the world around us. This ongoing class is for all levels from introductory to advanced. Drawing techniques will be taught through observational studies with an emphasis on line quality, tone and values, composition and perspective. Self-expression will be encouraged through enjoyable exercises designed to encourage the students to discover a personal style and a way of expressing what particularly interests them.

Realistic Drawing

This class offers techniques and strategies for putting on paper our visual experience.
Learn to look around and notice lines, shapes, textures, contrasts—and then draw what
you see, and what you remember. Perspective, structure, space, and shadows can be fun
to draw. Understand how space works on a flat surface, and create that space in your own
drawings. If you are interested in developing your ability to draw light and shadow, this
class is for you. Subjects include still life, nature, the human figure, interiors, landscapes,
city views, portraits.
