Students will learn basic drawing techniques as they create observational drawings. Students will build on their ability to identify contour lines of an object then add value to create a realistic drawing using shading techniques including highlights and shadows. As the class progresses, each learner will be able to determine if they are ready to learn perspective techniques to draw a composition based on objects and images they observe around them.
Basic Drawing Techniques meets for two hours on Tuesday and Thursday from 10-12 on July 7th and July 9th.
