This drawing class for adults is appropriate for beginners as well as people with some drawing experience who want additional instruction and practice.

We have many, many materials available to draw with. Yet we often restrict ourselves to pencil, especially when studying basic drawing. In the six weeks of class we will use pencils (and erasers, a sometimes neglected tool). But we will also focus on other basic drawing materials: charcoal, Conté crayon, ink, colored pencil or pastel, and paper!

Class exercises will concentrate on the essential drawing elements (line, value, shape, space, and color) while exploring a different material each week. Composition will be emphasized as will ways of learning from and being inspired by other artists' drawing.

Trying new materials can expand your artistic range and give you the confidence to keep experimenting. Also, it’s fun!
