Introduction to Drawing

Learn the basic techniques of drawing while working from still life, places in our immediate environment and each other in this introductory drawing class. We will focus on the building blocks of drawing such as composition, measurement, line, shape, value, gesture and mark. You will become familiar with a variety of materials and approaches to drawing by studying artwork both historical and contemporary. Although instruction will be rooted in drawing from observation, we will explore the potential to abstract from what we see and experiment with working from memory. We will engage in group discussions throughout the course. See Textbooks and Supplies for supply list. Students who take this class are invited to participate in our Summer CE Student Art Show. Visit our Art Show page for more information.

I loved that this was online. I wouldn't have been able to take an in person class due to my work schedule. I felt the material was very easy to follow and the teachers engagement was very helpful. Loved her recommendations of how to adjust what I was working on or to help see a piece of art in a different way. The exercises were great and I felt comfortable expanding my comfort level.
