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.
