Beginners will be taught to see (as an artist) line, location and value. They will learn how to use charcoal drawing tools and produce accurate drawings of simple still lives. Emphasis is on determining spacial relationships and accurate value depiction. A supply kit is available from the instructor for $35.00. Intermediate and advanced students work from still lives and photographs. Emphasis is on technique, composition, perspective, color and design. Media choices are colored pencil, water color, gouache and acrylic with the addition of ink, pastel and oil for advanced students only. All intermediate and advanced students supply their own materials. All instruction is individual; therefore each student will be working at his or her level and the only deadlines are sufficient completion of artwork.
