This 6 week course covers the basics of classical drawing training. Using the same drawing curriculm that the master artists of the 19th century French Academy started with, the student will train both eye and hand to the subtleties of proper representation. This course will give an overview of drawing materials and their proper use, using notional space and reference guidelines to measure and map out the contour, shadow shapes, and interior information relating to exterior line, shading and crafting 3 dimensional form on a two dimensional surface. Because, as with any skill, this takes practice and time to master, there will be assigned weekly excercises to do at home to increase your skill. This class is a prerequisit to Cast Drawing.
Materials are provided for in class work, a materials list will be provided for home work.
