A-48 Introduction to Drawing from Still-Life


Anyone can learn to draw, given the right fundamentals. If you’ve ever heard yourself saying “I can’t even draw a stick figure,” get ready to surprise yourself.  By the end of this course, students will have learned the basics of drawing – variety of line, mass, contour, cross-contour, reductive drawing, light & shadow, and values. Each class includes an instructor demo.  Materials list below.
