Drawing Realistically

$55

with Carolyn Wallace-Zani

Calendar Oct 31, 2019 at 6 pm

Are you struggling to make your drawings look more realistic and three-dimensional? This class is ideal for the beginner who wants to learn the basics of drawing and good composition. While this class is designed for the beginner, who has been drawing for less than 5 years, the emphasis is on learning through practice as an ongoing process. The former student will have the opportunity to develop more confidence by perfecting their current skill level, while the more experienced student will explore their personal style. Students may elect to work in their choice of dry mediums: such as graphite pencil, charcoal, or Conte crayon. With step-by-step instruction, students will learn how to transform flat, two-dimensional, basic shapes into three-dimensional forms. Students will learn to use a value scale to achieve dimensionality. Students will learn about: design, textures, using a grid and good composition. Demonstrations, group class critiques as well as exercises in and out-of-class will re-enforce drawing techniques and skills. No prior drawing experience is necessary. Students will progress at their own pace with individualized guidance. Class size is limited to 10 students. Request the supply list available through the office.
