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. Class sessions will include demonstrations and the assignment of “homework”. Each week participants will share our homework, answer questions and learn from each other.
