D202a  Fundamentals of Drawing (All levels) Brizzard  Monday  Aug 27-Oct 15  1:30pm-4:30pm  $233.00

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. There will be no class on Sept. 3rd.
