This course will focus on building the skills of students working at different levels, as they explore elements of drawing such as—line, gesture, shading, texture, color, composition, proportion and perspective. Working both in the galleries and studio classroom, students will learn a variety of techniques and improve observational skills while working creatively with a diverse array of inspirational artworks.

Students are responsible for providing their own supplies. View the supply list.
