Expand on basic drawing techniques and break out of your comfort zone with non-traditional drawing methods to render everyday life. Working with familiar tools, such as pencils, markers, charcoal and ink, zero in on concepts and form ideas that explore different ways to draw from the imagination. Along the way students will work on stimulating individual and group projects that will take your work to a more intriguing level.

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