Fundamentals of Drawing Class

A fundamental look at drawing with charcoal.  We will be working on composition, scale, value and lighting.  Our class will utilize white objects and direct lighting to create a dynamic contrast on the subject.  We will be using composition to gather the details of the drawing as a whole.  We will be working with our drawing tool as a measuring tool for scaling the piece to its background.  Value and lightning go hand in hand as we create volume by drawing without the use of harsh outlines with dark shadows.  The class will be a take on fundamental drawing, as a foundation for further learning.
