    Drawing is at the core of everything that we do as visual artists. Drawing often is its own thing, and the means to its own end. It is always an important step in creating other work such as paintings, sculpture, and even installations. Also is an endless amount that we can learn about our world and the people around us by simply drawing.

    In this class we will explore the different reasons we draw and discover some new ones, including the use of watercolor wash to add color. We will look at the many ways that we can make marks on our paper to express what we need to say about our subject. 

    We will also check out some drawings of famous artists that have gone before us and try our hand at some different drawing mediums.

    This class is designed for the artist that wants to find out what we can learn when we really look and start to push our limits.

    Materials will be provided although you should bring:

    • Sketchbook
    • Drawing pencils

    In the event that class is canceled due to weather a make up session will be scheduled for March 21.
