Instructor: Eddie Bruckner (see below)
This relaxed introductory online beginning drawing class is geared for those who have never taken a drawing class before or for any artist interested in learning new techniques to advance their drawing skills. We will cover the various drawing materials, drawing techniques, understanding composition, and the variety of lines, tones, and values used to bring a drawing to life. Through a variety of skill-building exercises and guided step-by-step projects, you will discover the elements of line, contour, form, value, texture, composition, proportion, shading, and perspective. Using various materials, such as graphite, lead, chalks, and charcoal, we will also explore the principles of light and shade and how line helps to reveal form. Class work will include a number of drawing exercises and projects including imaginative and observational drawing, landscapes, seascapes, florals, still lifes, and more. A combination of group and individual instruction in a supportive atmosphere will help students develop at their own pace. Join us to discover your artistic ability and drawing skills! Students will be responsible for purchasing their own supplies (available from the instructor with 2 week notice for $100). A supply list is here.
