This course imparts skills you need for drawing realistically. Both beginning and experienced artists benefit from the review of basic concepts such as line, form, texture, and composition. In addition to basic concepts and depending on class interest, we will cover landscape and perspective, figure and portrait drawing, and drawing from nature. Weekly sessions will provide time for drawing assignments that make use of everyday objects in your own home. Materials for drawing are simple and readily available: you probably already have paper, a pencil or pen, and an eraser. A list of additional, optional supplies will be sent to each registrant.
