At the beginner level, our students learn fundamentals of drawing, including composition, proportion and perspective. You'll learn to see and draw light, shadow and texture. You'll learn drawing and shading techniques such as hatching, cross-hatching, stippling, scumbling and stumping, and you'll incorporate those techniques into simple drawings of plants, vegetables, fruit and objects of metal and glass.
In "continuing beginner" and intermediate levels, you'll progress to drawing flowers and foliage, animals, landscapes, abstracts and the human form, and you'll learn to use a variety of drawing media such as ink, charcoal and conté crayon.
At the advanced level, you'll create more complex works in your choice of subject matter, developing skill and confidence as you use the many techniques in your toolbox to express what you see.
(Please note, our drawing courses do not use live models.)
