Learn how to use light and shadow to make your figure drawings come alive! This class will cover the basic concepts of light, shadow, and form modeling and apply it to drawing the human form.

Starts September 9, 2022!  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.
