Drawing is so intertwined with seeing that the two can hardly be separated.

Both seeing and drawing are skills that can be learned. Seeing involves learning to perceive edges, spaces, relationships, lights and shadows, and understanding how all of these come together to form a whole vision, and then a cohesive drawing. Drawing theories and techniques enable one to draw what one perceives. This class will include such techniques as: line sensitivity, contour line, intuitive gesture, grid lines, angle lines, figure/ground, proportion, perspective, and depicting light and shadow. Still life studio setups will be used for learning basic principles that can then be applied to all sorts of subject matter. All levels of experience are welcome. If you believe you can't draw, this class is for you. If you already draw quite well, you can sharpen your skills with a review of basic drawing theory and practice, plus explore more personal expression in your drawings. If you have already taken drawing classes with this instructor, this class is a good one in whic!
h to further your drawing knowledge, exploration, and practice - that is what is meant by "and beyond" in the class title. Individual attention will be emphasized.
