In the drawing studio you will learn the fundamentals of drawing by focusing on observational rendering, use of line, shading, and mark-making to think and draw spatially. While drawing from a variety of subjects, you’ll begin to build technical skills and develop your own personal expression. You’ll receive personal and group critiques and encouragement to facilitate growth in your drawing ability, gain knowledge and use of the elements of design, and prepare for painting or advanced drawing courses.

Instructors: Robert Caldwell, John Sims, and Mary Johnson
