Description

Class Experience

Learners will begin and learn to maintain a sketchbook practice which includes shape, line, value and composition using simple still life subjects.
This class will focus on guiding learners to discover their own artistic style and offering many techniques to achieve the desired result rather than the usual "draw-what-I-draw" directed method.
Learners will be encouraged to learn to see in the way an artist must see in order to produce recognizable images and yet render them in their own unique style.
A still life object will be set up and lit for drawing for each meeting. Students will be guided to notice general shapes as well as details, values and composition, and proper pencil techniques.
Please check the materials and supplies needed carefully before signing up.
Sample topic schedule: 
Monday, January 11: Sketching an apple
Monday January 18: sketch a mug
Monday January 25: sketch a soft drink can
Monday February 4: sketch a box
Monday February 8: sketch 
Students will be encouraged to continue working in their sketchbook between classes
