About this event


We're sorry, but this course is over. The last meeting was Monday, June 13, 2022.

Drawing: Foundations
Instructor: Dan Keller Drawing Foundations is based on providing students a solid foundation in drawing
fundamentals through an exploration of traditional media and techniques. Students
will learn about line, shape, composition perspective, light & shadow and how to
translate a three-dimensional visual into a two dimensional drawing through
observation and imagination. Students will learn to understand the potential of drawing
in itself, as well as apply this knowledge to other media. 1105.23.01.22 Levels 1 & 2
