Drawing (Mon) Grades 4-12

from 0.00

$450 Tuition for 28 weeks of 75-minute sessions with Kathryn Beifuss

Sep 10-May 20

Drawing is a foundational course that will teach students to see and analyze subject matter in the way that artists do, and to interpret that analysis on a two-dimensional surface. Students will learn various methods of analyzing subject matter in terms of perceived edges and basic shapes, and the importance of understanding cross-contour line in rendering three-dimensional form. They will also learn how to see and use negative space in creating effective compositions and to correctly judge relationships of size, angle, and proximity. 

Students will explore basic linear drawing techniques using graphite, wax crayons, charcoal, conte crayon, and pen and ink. They will also study drawings by other artists, both current and historical, and they will learn to utilize a sketchbook as a valuable drawing resource.
