This class will be for beginners and will focus first on the basics then expand to how to draw people and animals, as well as learning perspective, tonal value and pen and ink. To learn and understand drawing, we must start with the basics like understanding line, form, value and shading. Any drawing will have in it at least one of those elements so it is important to learn how to apply them to a drawing. Learning shading helps understand form. Learning to use lines and shapes help define a drawing. Henri Matisse once said: “A line is simply a dot that went for a walk.”

There is no material fee, however students are asked to bring at least one drawing pad no smaller than 9X12 preferably bigger, drawing pencils HB, 2B and 4B or whatever is available ( an HB pencil is like your #2 pencil from school. 2B, 3B or 4B means that it is a shading pencil, the higher the number the darker the shade) and an eraser preferably a kneaded eraser and a white eraser (no pink erasers).
