D202a  Drawing Fundamentals  (All levels)  Brizzard  Monday  May 14-June 18  1:30pm-4:30pm  $200.00

This course will introduce you to the fundamentals of drawing, the underpinnings that set you up for a strong piece of work. Often overlooked and undervalued, these underpinnings have withstood the test of time and have been in use for centuries. The elements of these underpinnings include the block-in, shape accuracy, proportion, separating light from shadow, establishing values, and conveying light on form. Students will start by copying drawings that incorporate these principles and will eventually move into setting up their own still-lives and drawing from life.

D203a  Still Life  (All levels)  Brizzard  Monday  May 14-June 18  6:00pm-9:00pm  $200.00

"The goal of this class is to introduce students to fundamental painting practices needed to set up a strong piece of work. Students will learn the core concepts of the block-in, separating light from shadow, setting up proper value relationships, getting the light effect and more. We will also look at still-life paintings from today and the past in order to expand our knowledge of the craft. Students will set up their own still-life by the end of the course.  Materials: vine charcoal, Canson Moonstone Mi-Teintes drawing paper (5 sheets), Burnt Umber, Ivory Black, Titanium White (no student-grade paints), assortment of bristle brushes (filberts and flats), canvases, Gamsol, Viva paper towels"
