A01 - Getting Started Drawing
April 25 - June 27 Tues

(10 classes)

Time: 7 - 9 pm

Learning to draw is a prerequisite for most painting courses. In this ten-week course we will practice the step-by-step process of creating a good drawing and build a solid foundation in the basic principles of visual art. We will begin with simple still life arrangements and gradually work our way up to the human figure, exploring different mediums and strategies along the way. This course is for beginners, but would benefit more experienced artists as well.
