Drawing is a fundamental skill and the foundation for other visual pursuits. Everyone can learn to draw. In this class students will learn to develop their power of observation and mark making skills through a series of lessons that focus on gesture, line, shape, value and spatial relationships. Weekly lessons will emphasize how to translate focused observations into visual expression using a variety of drawing materials and approaches. Students work primarily from still life and one session will be with a model.

Using a variety of drawing materials, students will develop keener observation skills, strengthen their ability to express themselves and be encouraged to further develop a personal style and aesthetic. We will draw from observation, working with a model as well as still life setups and concentrate on gaining a greater understanding of composition, value, form, space, line and perspective. Students will work on a variety of larger drawing papers and in a sketchbook.

This class will emphasize the process of seeing & drawing in public settings as a means for increasing our sensitivity to the world. After some drawing instruction and skill development, we will travel to different locations, get comfortable, and observe. We'll use drawing and other creative means, such as photography and writing, to record what we observe, paying close attention to the life, people, and objects around us. It's less about the finished product and much more about the process of seeing and recording, being fully present in our environment.
