Through observation and a step-by-step process, learn the basic concepts and techniques of drawing. A still life scene will be set up in class for students to draw. You will begin with blocking in the major shape, then finding the shadow shape and finally modeling the form to create a three-dimensional image. In class, we will discuss composition, how light falls on a form and gradation from light to dark to create volume.
