Class Experience

Learners will come away from this one time class with the knowledge and practice needed to further explore observational drawing, traditional hatching and cross hatching techniques, and the ability to create and work from a value scale. 
To be successful learners will want to ensure they have - Pencil and sharpener - 2H to HB or mechanical pencils work best - White vinyl eraser -Fine Liner - sizes: .3 or .5 recommended (whatever you have will be fine) - 3-5 white or off white sheets of paper (size recommended = 8x10 or 9x12) - Reflective object that fits in the hand such as a spoon or metalic cup. Please message the teacher if you have an object and want to know if it will work for this exercise.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will look at samples : 
Pieter Claesz, Vanitas with Violin and Glass Ball
Parmigianino, Self-portrait in a mirror
The Arnolfini Portrait, by Jan Van Eyck
