Have you ever wished you could draw but didn’t know where to begin? Perhaps you even feel intimidated by the idea of taking a drawing class because you don’t believe you have “talent” or don’t already know how to draw. Drawing is a skill that can be taught and learned. It’s never too late to learn! This class will introduce you to the concepts and visual perceptions that are the basic foundation of realistic/representational drawing in a relaxed and supportive environment. Through guided projects and exercises participants will explore issues of line, tonality, form, and how these issues inter-relate. Absolutely no experience necessary or expected. Material list will be provided.
