You will learn the classical, essential basics of drawing: line, value, proportion, the effect of light on forms, the elements of design and composition, and color theory.  Students will learn to see and accurately draw three-dimensional volumes in space--with knowledge of highlight, shadow, zone of tangency, cast shadow and reflected light.  Class exercises and still-life set-ups are designed to expand your drawing and observational skills.

You will also learn the classical method of "sight-size drawing" which gives you the technical skill to accurately draw what you see.You will learn to work with different drawing media--graphite, charcoal, sanguine and pastels.  As you complete the classes and assignments, you will develop drawing skills and your own individual style.  Each class features instructor demonstrations, individual instruction and group critiques.

Thank you so much for the beautiful portrait of our daughter. We know that it took many hours and great attention to the tiniest of detail. The way that you photographed her, your assistance in selecting the clothing, every step you took such pride of workmanship. We will treasure it for many years to come!
