Most people are unaware that if they can thread a needle or catch a ball, they can also sketch. The trick is getting into the right side of the brain and this is all the magic that is needed to start sketching! In this applied art class, we will employ the use of exercises to get the right side of our brains working “right,” learn how to shade our drawings and how to represent proportions, (that is how large or small an object is in relation to others), and we will study one point perspective as well as how to set up a portrait. Confidence will be gained as we learn and practice these sketching skills one step at a time. Though designed for beginners, intermediate artists can also benefit from relearning basic drawing fundamentals. (First class required attendance. Course fee includes sketching materials. A limited enrollment class)
