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.
