Who says you can’t draw? Drawing is a learned, not inherited skill, so everyone is welcome!
Participants in this class will use a variety of media as they explore different means of drawing expression. There will be an emphasis upon building images through observation while in a studio setting. The elements of line and value will be used during the first two days. Day 3 will be devoted to the basics of perspective, perhaps outdoors, weather permitting.
This class is designed for beginners or those with limited experience. Intermediate level artists can participate in order to advance their skills. All materials will be provided, and some will be available to take home. Participants will be encouraged to take the Introduction to Acrylic Landscape painting class or Linda Berry’s Watercolor class.
