Drawing for Beginners – 4 weeks

Instructor: Perdita Ross

March 4 – March 25 (4 weeks)
Mondays, 1 – 3:30pm

Students will practice and learn the basic techniques and elements of drawing. We will work together to develop your artistic skills by experimenting with different drawing tools and materials during each session. Every class will begin with 30 minutes of quick sketch before beginning a formal composition. The first 3 sessions will be based on value scale, linear perspective and shapes. The last 3 classes will concentrate on shading contours, light, shadow and subtractive drawing.

At the end of every class there will be a doodle challenge which you will complete on your own during the week. Working from photos and direct observation will increase your confidence and ability to draw what you see in your own style.
