This course will focus on the development and improvement of basic drawing skills and concepts with an emphasis on observation and visual problem solving.  Representation and expression will be explored through the use of black and while drawing media.  Critiques will be used to develop student’s ability to formulate and verbalize knowledgeable responses to visual production.

Students in this class will use charcoal to work on the planes of the skull.

Lesson breakdown:
Class 1 – planar skull side; proportions, planes, and values
Class 2 – planar skull front; proportions, planes, and values
