Drawing Fundamentals ( 15+ Years )
Drawing accurately from observation is key to developing your ideas and imagination. This class introduces students to the fundamentals of drawing through focused lessons on line, texture, value, and perspective. Learn concepts, technical skills, and most importantly how to see!
We will start the course by imaging what your ultimate expression might be “if only” you could! Then we will work over the next four weeks to develop your skills to bring you closer to that expression.
With over 25 years of teaching art, instructor Deborah Mitchell has helped a variety of students develop their skills. Her aim is to have everyone, no matter their experience or skill level, be able to see real progress in their art work. All supplies included.
