Drawing with Black, White and the Rainbow In Between

Are you one of those people who thinks they can't draw anything but a stick figure? Here's your opportunity to learn to draw expressively and creatively. This class in expressive drawing will begin its repertoire with free drawing in charcoal. We will work with paint as a drawing medium, as well as pencil. Non-objective and objective drawing will both be taught as we play with the elements of form, line, shape, size, proportion. We will explore frontage (rubbings) and incorporating it in our work. We will move into working with pastels to accent with color and to make a full artwork in color. 5 classes. All levels.

Tuesdays 11 am-1 pm beginning January 10, 2023
