Learn the Basics of Drawing, Sketching, and Illustrating

Getting started in traditional art can be daunting, but we’ll give you a crash course in drawing. We’ll work with charcoal, pencil, and pen to develop drawing skills and break that frightening first step.

In this drawing class, you’ll learn how to create the basics of art, including:
Planes, lines, and shapes and how to develop non-representative artwork
Value and volume – providing a visible 3D look to your artwork, such as shading and shadowing
Mark making and lines – taking realistic-looking work and stylizing your art
Human form – find out how to live sketch and figure draw models in real-time
Art composition – how to organize your drawing to get the effect you want to achieve

In addition, you’ll learn how to critique your artwork and other artists’ artwork in a professional environment. Students in the class will work together to improve both their art abilities and art communication skills.
