The focus of this course is to develop and improve student’s drawing ability. Students will learn the essential basic skills of drawing, starting with exercises sketching objects from life. As skills develop students practice drawing more complex forms such as plaster casts of fragments from the face of Michelangelo’s David beginning with the study of the variety of facial planes. We will cover and discuss many instructional topics with the main focus of learning to draw in an accurate way. Materials fee of $12 is payable to the instructor at the first class. Please bring an 18 x 24 Drawing Pad (not newsprint), a Pencil HB, Eraser and Pencil sharpener.
