Drawing is honest. It cannot be covered up or even completely erased. There is always a palimpsest, a trace of what went before. In this sense it exposes our process and not just the ‘polished’ art we want everyone to see. Drawing seemingly records the interplay between our hand and heart and eyes. Like an emotional EKG, drawn lines reveal the artist themselves. This class is for every skill level of drawer. We will learn basic techniques such as shading, line quality and perspective as well as fun approaches to this art form. Each class will consist of learning a specific art technique, a slide show to compliment the day’s class, a longer assignment and a group critique. Optional homework will also be assigned.
