Drawing Essentials Plus

$249.99 CAD

Description

Have you ever wanted to learn to draw? Here is your chance to gain that skill, so useful for its own sake, but also as a necessary foundation for painting or design. We will start at the beginning with essential exercises in line and form. We will go through the ten basics, such as gesture, line, texture, mass, space, silhouette, figure-ground, tonality, light/shading, and perspective. As well as the Basics, we will aim to produce some skilled and finished drawings.

● Anyone who wants to learn how to draw using a pencil and paper
● Anyone who wants to learn drawing in a more “traditional” way.
● Anyone wanting to increase their drawing skills
