“I have drawn my whole life. I began with drawing. I have never stopped drawing." -Rodin

Jump back into drawing or explore the fundamentals of art again as a refresher. This course is designed to offer the basics of spatial rendering to all artists who need a start or a new beginning. Through exploring the basics of line, ellipse, shading, contrast, expression, composition, perspective and more we will have a fun time getting to know drawing – the foundation of all art.

Why is Drawing Important to my Study of Art?

  • Drawing is the fundamental tool of expression and design.

Course Objectives: The skills students should walk away with after this class will include:

  • Efficiently using various drawing materials to create aesthetically pleasing space.
  • The ability to render objects with a critical eye and mind.
  • The knowledge of drawing processes and mediums.
