Visual Arts and Ceramics
Drawing for Beginners and Beyond
Drawing teaches you first how to see, then how to translate, and finally how to imagine. In this class students will explore how to create space with line, and mass with shading. You will learn how to construct and execute compositions that make even unfinished drawings look finished. Additionally, the instructor will teach the different types of pencils and their uses, as well as how to achieve effects using your eraser.
Supply list for Drawing for Beginners and Beyond: Newsprint pad (18x24), pencils (H2, HB, 2B, 6B, etc.), pencil sharpener, conte crayon or charcoal (vine and stick), and kneadable eraser. Plastic or pink erasers also useful.
