This class will explore basic drawing techniques including light and shadow, line, perspective, and composition. Through a series of demos and set-ups, students will learn to construct visually interesting drawings while gaining a sound understanding of materials and methods. This course is intended for students looking to gain a solid foundation in drawing, which will provide the basis for moving towards more advanced techniques such as figure drawing, painting, and sculpture. Materials used will include: graphite, charcoal, conte' crayon, and ink. See www.spruillarts.org for a list of supplies you will need to bring to class.
