    Would you like to make your drawings appear more realistic than ever before? What if you could produce images using simple drawing materials that looked like paintings or photos? This ONLINE class will explore those possibilities. By blending and layering different mediums such as pencil, charcoal, ink, colored pencil and pastel, you will discover ways to make your drawings vibrate with color, texture and dimension. We will focus on a variety of subjects, including still lifes, as well as the human figure. For each project, emphasis will be placed on gauging accurate proportions first, followed by value tones and colors. This class goes well beyond the basics and students can expect to produce highly finished works of art. Many of the same concepts taught in this class can be applied to painting.

    Drawing is a skill which can be honed to an individual's personal vision. Any artistic concept whether it be a simple sketch in pencil or a complex composition in another medium, can be realized through the process of drawing. This class is designed to teach students the basic principles of drawing using a combination of observational and conceptual exercises. Students will learn various techniques such as sight-size/comparative measuring, methods of shading, concepts of perspective, and more! Mediums used will include pencil, charcoal, colored chalks, and ink.
