I cannot begin to tell you how often I hear, "I can't draw a straight line," or "I can barely even a draw stick person." I am convinced that anyone can learn to draw, however first you need to Learn To See. See as an artist does. Once you experience this, drawing skills can quickly be learned.
In this class you will learn useful drawing techniques that will help you see the world around you with a new vision, while learning to loosen up and draw without the crutch of an eraser. Together, we will be drawing found and/or everyday objects that are always in abundance. You will learn the difference between what we know about objects and what we see. After completing the ink drawing, you will learn some basic color theory and how to apply watercolor and colored pencil to your drawing to give it a visual punch.
Once comfortable with your new "vision", we will explore a variety of pencil and pen techniques for applying value to our drawings, thus increasing the illusion of three-dimensional form. Some of these modeling techniques may include expressive line qualities, value relationships with the use of continuous tone, hatching, and cross-hatching.
