This class focuses on observational drawing with additional elements from one’s imagination to produce unique contextual portraits. The class has two models: one performing quick poses for gesture, and the other holding a long pose for a more resolved drawing. One-on-one instruction (for both beginners and more advanced students) is provided to facilitate each student’s understanding and growth in creating art from their minds combined with what is seen through their eyes. Students will learn to draw light, shadow, and form using both additive and subtractive methods of drawing. Recommended materials include graphite pencils (HB, 2B, 4B, 8B), a MONO eraser pencil, a kneaded eraser, and vine or willow charcoal. Colored pencils or pastels are also welcome.
