Broaden your beginning drawing skills by exploring how to draw with charcoal. Charcoal is a forgiving medium that allows for plenty of experimentation. Learn to create successful compositions by drawing from observation and your imagination. Exercises will encourage you to think differently and expand your ideas of what drawings can be about. Students will be encouraged to pursue their own choices in subject matter and style.
Students are responsible for providing their own supplies. View the supply list.
