What you'll learn in this beginner drawing class:

Drawing is the most valuable skill in all the visual arts and needed for all artistic disciplines. 

This course is perfect for adult students looking for a strong foundation, it’s a great skill for anyone working in film, graphic design, fashion industry or or those who work digitally. Hone your skill set and grow confidence with your sketches. Learn how to create dynamic compositions as you study classical drawing techniques 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.

We will also demo how to draw using the right side of the brain, how to draw curves, use contour technique & straight line approximation technique as well as the essentials of drawing ellipses, a cylinder and hemispheres. Learn how to employ horizontal lines & vanishing points to give your drawings a sense of volume and accuracy. How to use the midpoint establishment to ensure the two major halves or your drawings are accurate. These practical exercises help beginners learn how to see shape and form.

This class is an excellent introduction to drawing for students who are serious about learning their craft. We recommend a full class course syllabus to see real progress. Returning students are welcome & will be accommodated for.

Question from Ethel A.
What do I need to bring to class? Is this a "drop-in" or are these periodic 1 time sessions? Thanks!

Hi! Materials are included but NOT canvas. Canvas must be purchased prior to attending class and the school advises a mid-size canvas to start. The session is offered for 6 weeks or students can take a drop-in or a few drop-ins. Each session lasts for 2 hours.
