This course puts the “fun” back in “fundamentals.” Drawing is a set of skills almost anyone can learn. Knowing how to get your ideas onto paper can free your imagination to soar. In this class for beginning and intermediate artists, we will consider form and proportion, shading and texture, perspective and composition. Students will receive individual attention in a warm and friendly setting. Supply list: Sketch pad (9 x 12″ or 11 x 14″); set of graphite pencils (4H, 2H, H, B, 2B, 3B, 4B, 5B. and 6 B); kneaded eraser; pencil sharpener. a $7 set-up fee is payable to the instructor on the first day of class.

Susan Dahl studied art at a variety of places, including Amherst College, Parsons School of Design, and The School of Visual Arts, and worked as a graphic designer for many years. She began teaching in community art programs in Boston in 1996, and this led her to complete a degree in Art Therapy at Lesley University.
