Drawing 1

A beginning drawing course for those seeking an immersive experience in drawing instruction. In this studio course, which builds on skills learned in Drawing Basics, seeing form through the use of light and shadow, texture, line, and color is emphasized. We discuss drawing materials, form, line, and shading. By creating still lifes and live models, students learn the drawing techniques of perspective, foreshortening, gesture, portraiture, and the representation of drapery.
