This six-week observational drawing class will focus on improving a student’s ability to create representational drawings in pencil, charcoal, and ink. Students will be working primarily from still life setups that will become increasingly ambitious as the class progresses. An analytical approach to creating drawings including sighting and measuring techniques will be explained. The first two weeks of the class will focus on charcoal, the next two will concentrate on pencil work, and the final two will consist of hatching and cross-hatching using pen and ink. Students will learn how to create a range of value and different textures using each of these media, and will learn about the strengths and limitations of each approach. The class is open to any skill level, and students will receive individual feedback during each class as well as two group critiques over the course of six sessions.
