Basic Drawing – Let’s start with a line

Richmond Still Life Window

July 15, 22, 29: This three-session class will help you develop basic drawing skills. Starting with a line, we explore the use of dark and light values as we focus on the drawing process and direct observation. The class includes demonstrations, discussions, and presentations of drawing examples from the Masters to contemporary artists. Creating a personal sketchbook will be encouraged.
