Class Experience

What will students learn?

1. Students will learn techniques for sketching a proportionate contour drawing (outline) of a crow. 
2. Students will learn techniques for smooth blending, gradient blending, and adding contrast using charcoal.
3. Students will learn techniques for drawing realistic feathers using charcoal.
4. Students will learn techniques for adding highlights to black feathers using charcoal and an eraser.
5. Students will learn a few facts about crows.
Because of how detailed these drawings are, there is a good chance students will need to finish sketches outside of the designated class time.
