Drawing Basics Intensive Workshop

June 13, 2016 @ 9:00 am - June 17, 2016 @ 4:00 pm

Instructor: Barbara Moody
Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm | June 13 – 17

This intensive course offers challenging exercises and helpful hints to achieve accurate drawings from observation. Students quickly gain skills in achieving strong tonal values with light and shadow, correct proportion, ellipses and perspective, and dynamic composition. The professor’s demonstrations and image presentations reveal strategies for developing drawings step-by-step from start to finish.

We work from still life, drapery, and interiors (no figures), and work mainly in charcoal and soft pastel. The class provides a highly supportive environment and personal attention.

This course is especially useful for artists who have some experience with art, but who don’t feel completely confident about their drawing skills. By the end of the week, you should be able to draw just about anything with confidence.

Prerequisite: some previous experience in drawing / painting is useful

*this course may be taken for 1.5 credits; additional fees, pre-requisites, and requirements apply. Please contact the Continuing Education Office first to confirm eligibility before registering for credit. Montserrat Students should register via campus cafe.
