Traditional Drawing

Learn the fundamentals of drawing and build skills that transfer to other art practices. Academic drawing remains an incredibly valuable method for developing dexterity and sensitivity with materials such as pencil and charcoal. The media and subjects of this class are basic, but its highly disciplined approach will reward you with a depth of skill that is acquired through time and practice. This course takes place over two sessions – Fall 2018 and Winter 2019.
