Heighten Your Awareness - Learn to Draw

Contact the Josephy Center for Arts and Culture for class registration, $95 for 8 week class

Join the discussion while learning to draw.  Decode and speak the language of Art, heighten your powers of observation and creativity, and learn to be a credible critic.  Basic Drawing is the essential gateway and the foundation of all visual arts.

The beginning-drawing course includes use of materials, contour drawing, negative spaces, values and shading, textures, sighting, linear and aerial perspective, landscapes, portraiture, abstracts, and composition and vocabulary.

Minimum materials for the workshop are a spiral bound sketchpad, three drawing pencils (6B, 2B, H), and a kneaded rubber eraser.
