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 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.
