Overview of this Art Class
In this workshop you will learn basic skills that will help you to draw well. You will be able to take these skills and continue to use them to improve your own drawing technique.
This workshop covers different ways of seeing and drawing. Whether you are new to drawing or already have some experience you will come away with a strong foundation for further study and exploration.
Some of the skills you will learn are;
- Breaking down form into simple shapes.
- Learning to draw what is seen as opposed to what you think you see.
- Creating volume and mass through light and shade.
- Detail and simplification - the "art" of what to leave in and what to take out.

DOs and DONTs

Be encouraging of other people.
Don't be nervous.
Most people will be new at this. And you will find that there is something about doing art that makes people more friendly. If there are more experienced artists in the class you will find that they are more than willing to share what they know as well.
That is one of the great things about learning in a group environment.
