Many aspiring artists understand that drawing is fundamental to painting, but still struggle to learn the basics of good draftsmanship. Applying these skills to the practice of painting can be even more daunting. In this class, you will focus on using a painterly approach to charcoal to learn the basics of drawing in a way that translates readily to painting. Each week will focus on different subjects that will gradually build in complexity to keep you challenged and engaged in the learning process. This 4-week class is ideal for beginner to intermediate students, and no painting or drawing experience is required. Enrolled students will receive a syllabus prior to class.
