All levels of drawing experience are welcome in this 8-week class focusing on drawing from observation. Become well-acquainted with Modern abstract sculpture (Giacometti, Moore, Calder), bronze dancers by Rodin, African artifacts (nailed ritual objects, beaded hats, fertility figures), Thai Buddha and Indian Shiva figures while developing a sense of proportion, perspective, line quality, value, composition and personal style. Techniques introduced include gestural drawing and tri-value drawing--working on a water-colored surface with white color pencil and graphite pencil. To the first class, please bring: HB, 2B, and 2H graphite pencils, an eraser and a sketchbook, around 11 x 14 inches.
