Course # 101X: Observational Drawing/Field Sketching for Beginners

This workshop will give students the basics they need to tackle observational drawing. We will focus on gesture drawing and contour drawing, and then integrate these as we explore proportion, perspective, texture, and values. The materials are simple: Conte crayon and newsprint paper, and pencils and drawing paper. The Zoom class will be very interactive with discussion and critiques, demonstrations, and time for working in class.  10 students maximum.


More classes are being planned.  As we transition to remote programming, we will be offering a limited number of on-line courses featuring small classes and the same individualized instruction as our in-person programs.  Our offerings will grow with time.
