Drawing From Observation (6wks)

Observational drawing is a useful skill, applicable to many artistic endeavors, but can also be a deeply meditative and rewarding practice on its own.  Over the span of the course, students will work on developing and honing their observation skills and applying those skills to drawing from life.  We will experiment and play with scale, materials and approaches, learning to use techniques such as line, gesture, texture, colour, tonal shading and composition.  The class will focus on drawing objects, both everyday and unique, as well as introduce portrait and figure drawing.  This class would be suitable for beginners, for those developing a portfolio, or anyone seeking a basic refresher of their drawing skills. Artist Instructor: Beth Conklin
