About the Event Class: On-going Drawing Class, Three 2-hour classes July 6, 13 and 20 Time: 3 – 5:00 pm Price: $ 100 per block Teacher: Connie Canby An ongoing series of monthly drawing classes were requested for you to keep current with your skills of the “Art of Seeing” meaning connecting to your subject through the “act” of drawing what you are looking at. With practice, you can create works that enhance your ability to produce the kind of drawing or painting (painting is just a thicker line) that you feel best expresses what you meant to portray. Often, we are so disappointed in the results of what we planned or see in our imagination, but our discontent is in direct proportion to our level of skills. In this series, we go through the practice of giving a lined drawing shape and form and shading and shadow to help place the subject in time. Then you will arrange what you are drawing into a pleasing design to practice compositional elements. Next, we will look at bringing the center of interest to the attention of the viewer using gained drawing skills. Depicting a three-dimensional object on a two-dimensional surface is daunting but by seeing the progress you will have achieved, your still life, landscape, seascapes, figures, wildlife or imaginative drawings will be a fun and rewarding process. Finally, we will use colored pencils to draw with. This is when the excitement builds, and we have even more fun. The 6-hour course (3 two-hour classes) is a good foundation for this class and will help you in the process. We can catch you up with homework if you wish to join us. Connie will discuss/recommend a minimal list of supplies in the first class. Max 15 Students! This number could change based on current COVID guidelines.
