- 8/6/20, 8/13/20, 8/20/20, 8/27/20
- 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
The Drawing Foundation Session will introduce the basic principles, methods and technique to help you teach yourself to draw realistically. Each week will provide an overview of, and preliminary exercises that combine sketching and rendering in graphite pencil.
The exercises are developed to establish a foundation that will allow you to expand at your own pace. You will explore the very basic concepts of line quality, shapes, tone-building, light and shade, and the use of lines to create texture. Your understanding of the materials and basic principles is the first place to start; being armed with these tools of understanding and techniques will allow you to draw anything you want.
Materials: Sketch paper, or copy paper, or news print; graphite pencil or charcoal pencil – eraser optional.
