Each class will start with time to sketch everyday objects, helping students develop the skill “to draw what you see, not what you know”. We will move on to basic drawing of 2-D and 3-D geometrical shapes to learn foundational techniques and to practice different aspects of drawing. We will also explore drawing architecture – from a study of simple architectural elements, to designing buildings using graph paper as a guide for proportion. Students will have the opportunity to design and work independently as well as with the instructor. Please bring the following supplies to class: a Drawing Pad (11″ x 14″) , Pencil HB, Colored Pencils (12), an Eraser and an 8 1/2″ x 11″ pad of Graph paper.
