Fundamentals of Drawing (online)

Still life drawing

Art Students League
New York City

Tuesdays and Fridays, 7:00pm – 8:30 pm ET
Starts January 5!  Registration is ongoing on a monthly basis.

This class teaches the basics of structural drawing, depicting light and shadow, and composition through the study of still-life objects. The class is designed to give students a clear process of looking and drawing that can be used both for simple objects and more complicated subjects. Each month will focus on a slightly different topic: contours, perspective, values, sketching, and others. The class is open to all skill levels but is designed to give beginning students a friendly but rigorous place to start drawing.
