This class is for students serious about art and learning to sketch. Patience required! Sketching is something you can do anywhere anytime with just a pad and pencil! Sketching is a freehand drawing that focuses on capturing the essence rather than going into details. Students will learn proportion, perspective, and understand light and shadow as they sketch basic shapes in life drawing and figure drawing. They will discover different mark making methods and how to use soft and hard graphite pencils and a blending stick. Each student receives their own drawing pencil and drawing pads to take home.
