Class is OPEN! Now and Forever!
This is a comprehensive drawing course made exclusively for beginners.
In this intro to drawing class, the beginner student will learn the basics of using line, tone and shading to draw what you see!! First things first, however, we loosen up while learning the value of using varied line weights by learning and practicing the art of Zentangle. First some flowers, then a fish...
And then this cool girl!!!
We continue to loosen up in a quick scribble art exercise!
And after we understand line weights, we will progress to talk about and implement the value scale.
In addition to simple shapes, we will expand upon our understanding by learning to draw simple objects using our value scale!
We will also be practicing our new skills by learning how to depict flowers and faces, my all time favorite things to draw. As I teach you to learn how to draw what you see in real life, we will also go over whimsical vs. realistic drawing styles and how to find out which one is for you!
Next you will learn how to understand and implement the proportion of a realistic face vs. a whimsical one!
First we learn the features of the whimsical face and how to draw them! In not just one way...but two!
And then you will learn, step-by-step, how to draw realistic eyes, nose, mouth, ears and hair!
