Drawing Adult Students - David Rivera
Learn the basics of drawing in pencil or charcoal. A "three dimensional" rendering is nothing more than an accurate representation of proportion, perspective and tonal values on a two dimensional surface. There are proven methods which can help to unveil the mystery about drawing accurately. With the right tools you can learn how to make educated decisions which will allow you to render a believable still life, portrait, figure or whatever else you wish to draw. A few of the lessons that I teach include sight-size and comparative measuring, compositional sketching, the rules of perspective, various shading techniques and anatomical studies for figures and/or portraits.

Preferring acrylic painting as a teaching medium I am fluent with two-dimensional mediums such as oils, watercolor, pastels, drawing and mixed medium.
