The Joy and Freedom of Contour Drawing

Instructor: Deirdre Saunder
If you want to make better drawings, this online drawing class is for you! It is ideal for beginners as well as more advanced students in search of a little more creativity in their drawings from observation. Fundamental contour drawing techniques, primarily in pencil and pen will be taught, as well as more advanced contour drawing exercises that include color and design techniques. Contour drawing is a continuous line drawing that describes the outermost edges of a form, as well as dramatic changes of the plane within the form. Subjects will include still life objects, the human figure (its OK if you live alone – you will be the model!), landscape, and photographic references. A supply kit of suggested materials is available for “grab and go purchase”. Even if you don’t have all of these materials, you can still participate. Class sessions will include demonstrations and the assignment of “homework”. Each week participants will share our homework, answer questions and learn from each other.

This online class will be taught through the video-conferencing platform Zoom, and your teacher will use Google Classroom or email to facilitate further communication with you and your classmates

There is a small tuition scholarship fund for qualifying furloughed workers and front-line workers tuition.
