What you'll learn in this beginner drawing class:

Our introductory course is designed for absolute beginners. In this course students will acquire an understanding of basic concepts and begin to develop their drawing skills.

We shall start at the rudimentary level by understanding the potential of the materials we’ll use, namely pencil and charcoal. We shall further study elements and principles of design and other crucial concepts through various exercises; these include: point, line, value, shape, form (volume), texture, as well as composition, balance, rhythm, and symmetry. Students will also learn measuring technique (the means to achieving accurate proportion), how to understand three dimensional space in two dimensional terms by learning one-point and two-point perspective and foreshortening, as well as classical ways of achieving depth, such as through aerial perspective. The study of color is excluded from the introductory drawing course.       

The course is comprised of 8 two-hour class sessions.

Materials:
  • pencils (6H, 2H, H, 4B, 6B)
  • vine charcoal (optional)
  • eraser (regular eraser, kneaded eraser aka ‘putty rubber’)
  • pencil sharpener
  • drawing pad (recommended size: 12x18 and up)
  • fixative(hairspray will do)
You will receive an email with more in-depth information about materials when you register.

Arrivals:
Please arrive 10 min early to set up your working space; instructors will start their lectures promptly at the beginning of each class.

What to bring and what to wear: Please bring your supplies as instructed. Please try not to come in nice clothes. We have aprons, but accidental splashes do occur.
