Drawing is the catalyst for most, if not all, our creative endeavors. So, let’s start drawing! We’ll study line, tone, proportional relationships, finding the underlying geometry and interconnectedness of everything.

Working from a live subject is the best way to learn how to see and interpret the three-dimensional form.

Class starts March 2 and meets 5 times.

If elements are the “bones” of art, then the principles are the “skin” that covers them. For those of you who took Drawing I: Understanding the Essential Elements of Art or already have a basic knowledge of drawing, this course will take you on a deeper journey. We will explore art principles such as composition, unity & balance, focal points, perspective, repetition & other forms of expression that help create your own personal style. Your eyes will be trained to see more clearly as we employ the sight sized method, alignments, atmospheric qualities, art mapping tricks, etc. Toward the end of the course, each student will move into the direction of their own interests.
