Still Life Drawing

Duration: 8 Weeks

Price: $200

This course focuses on improving students’ observational drawing skills.  Exercises and drawing activities will direct the students toward understanding how to measure proportion, understanding basic perspective, understanding light and shadow, and ultimately, how to make their drawing ‘look’ like what they are seeing. Skill level is open; these exercises will help with all abilities.  In addition to learning how to draw ‘what’ one sees, the student should also leave this course with a better understanding of ‘how’ they see.
