In the first few weeks, we will develop an eye for line- form & tone in still-life arrangements using a combination of pencil, charcoal or inks. Practical exercises on how to draw using the right side of the brain, how to draw curves, use contour technique & straight line approximation technique, the essentials of drawing ellipses, drawing a cylinder, hemispheres & how to employ horizontal lines & vanishing points, & how to use cross contours to give your drawings a sense of volume and accuracy. Learn how to use the midpoint establishment to ensure the two major halves or your drawing are accurate- these classic exercises help you learn how to see shape and form.
