Drawing Fundamentals

Draw­ing is one of the cor­ner­stones of art train­ing and is fun­da­men­tal for visu­al arts. Learn the essen­tials of draw­ing from obser­va­tion. Employ­ing pen­cil, con­té, or char­coal on paper, class projects use still-life motifs to intro­duce you to the basic ele­ments of draw­ing line, form, tone, and tex­ture. Devel­op your aware­ness of see­ing and under­stand­ing the fac­tors that work in good pic­ture-mak­ing and apply them to pro­duce a fin­ished drawing.
