One time-honored tradition of an artists' training is that of the apprentice copying their master's work. This practice is common even today; we will continue in this method by sketching the paintings and drawings of famous artists together during class!

Students will practice drawing proportionate human figures, from observation. Drawing techniques including shading, texture, and adding backgrounds will also be demonstrated. Lessons will emphasize naturalism and the unity of the figures we draw.
Students who work more slowly may wish to take extra time after class had ended to complete their drawings.
1 file available upon enrollmentJust paper and a pencil! Good eraser: mandatory. Sketchbooks optional. Also optional: Students may wish to add shading or color using media such as ink, watercolor, colored pencil, etc. This is entirely optional and dependent on the preferences of each student!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
