Join us and learn the fundamental skills of how to draw, starting off with simple still life studies. Through this we will be learning the rules of drawing and gathering all the skills that are required of a good artist so that we can then practice by ourselves and be able to draw whatever we see in reality or in our imaginations.
Over a series of three classes, we will cover the following basic principles:
Composition - the placement or an arrangement of visual elements (line, color, shape, value, space, and form) in a work of art to bring the elements into a satisfactory relationship.
Proportions - The comparative relation of size between all the objects in your scene.
Perspective - The art of representing three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface, how basic shapes (squares, circles, etc...) behave on perspective and how to keep proportions.
Lighting - Lightness or darkness expressed with values of the grayscale to create the illusion of light, trace properly casted shadows, reveal the volumes and set an expressive mood.
Edges - A way to split silhouettes and shapes of the objects in your scene to ease the reading of the picture and increase feeling of depth.
At the end of this series of classes you will come away with a beginning portfolio full of your work sketches, with at least one completed drawing showcasing your skills and style.
