Introduction to Drawing – 6 week class
Drawing is a portal into the most interesting part of the visual universe; the beginning. It is the big bang and the period immediately following, a period of high energy and dynamism where order is first revealed in visual chaos. You can expand your drawing skills as your visual universe unfolds.
In this course, students will explore basic drawing techniques that will allow them to accurately draw what is seem with line and then render light and shade on form with shading and hatching. The measuring of angles and proportions; perspective; modular drawing, planar drawing, shading and separating the effect of local colour from light and shade on form will all be explored. Subject matter will include still life, architecture, machinery, plaster casts, the human skeleton, and the nude model. As well as looking at how concepts being studied in class are applied in the fine arts we’ll also look at how they are employed in film, television, advertising and 3D programs. Each class will begin with a slide presentation of prepared images to illustrate the concepts and exercises of that drawing session.
