This class is perfect for beginner to intermediate drawing students. Students will explore different types of pencils and the elements of line and value. Students will experiment with contour drawing, blind contour drawing, and cross contour drawing. Students will also use charcoal to explore perspective and surrealism. The end of the session will include a mixed media project using the lessons taught throughout the class.
