What you'll learn in this beginner drawing class:

It all starts and ends with drawing, the foundation every artist needs. If you struggle with form, core shadows and composition- then begin the class with tailored instruction on perfecting your drawing skills.

Open to all ages & levels.

What you will learn
Learn to draw simple to complex objects
Learn how to understand value
Work with lighting as it relates to form
Learn how to use charcoal and dry mediums
Learn perspective and composition
Learn to create the illusion of 3 dimension

We have structured this foundation drawing class
so that many different skill levels from absolute beginner to intermediate artist can participate. Drawing students will start the class with basic drawing exercises along with explaining your drawing materials and how to use them to your advantage. We will spend time drawing the basic forms from a still life set up using direct lighting to help you understand value. You will learn how to see these same basic forms when you draw more complex objects. You will learn about proper proportions and relationships. We will cover eye level and foundation perspective, explore line and values, direct lighting and cast shadows as well as soft and hard edges. You will be given lots of one on one instruction with plenty of demonstrations to guide you through the different elements of good drawing.

If a student misses a class for whatever reason, and if a 24-hour notice was given to our office, as a courtesy, Kline Academy welcomes students to come to any other class while enrolled and if space is available, to do a "make- up." Make-ups are not owed to a student and have no monetary value, they are simply a courtesy extended by Kline Academy.

A make-up class may not be used in the class you are in or added on at the end of the session. Make-ups expire at the end of the year they were acquired in.
