Accurate drawing and good draftsmanship are crucial tools for every artist. In this class, you will learn the basics of drawing with a fun, painterly approach. By using a variety of charcoal materials and tools like paint brushes, blending stumps and rags, you will learn to create beautiful drawings with a technique that closely mimics painting. This class is ideal for painters who want to improve their draftsmanship, or for beginners who want to build a foundation in drawing. Each week will focus on a different topic, beginning with basic forms and plaster casts. Each class session will gradually build in complexity to keep you challenged and engaged. The last half of the class will cover portrait drawing in preparation for painting. This class is ideal for beginner to intermediate students and no painting experience is required.
