Students learn the important skill of classic drawing in a few short weeks with classic exercises as they develop confidence with their sketches & create dynamic compositions.

Explore classical principle exercises for achieving accurate proportion & linear perspective. Develop an eye for line-form & tone in still-life arrangements using a combination of pencil, charcoal or inks. Students will participate in practical exercises on how to draw using the right side of the brain, how to draw curves, use contour technique & straight line approximation technique, the essentials of drawing ellipses, drawing a cylinder, hemispheres & how to employ horizontal lines & vanishing points to give drawings a sense of volume and accuracy. Students will learn how to use the midpoint establishment to ensure the two major halves of their drawings are accurate. These classic exercises help students learn how to see shape and form. This class is an excellent introduction for students who are serious about learning how to draw. Returning students are welcome and will be accommodated for.
