Art classes in drawing are key and fundamental to all art making. The practice of drawing allows us to develop visual communication skills; it enables the development of ideas and of problem solving skills through and within art making. By exploring various ways of seeing, composing and mark making, the practice of drawing also provides the basis for ongoing art studies.
Drawing classes at the school will assist participants of all level of skills and experience, to develop observational and interpretive methods in drawing. Students will explore skills in close observation and will learn ways to compose images informed by essential principles of art.
Drawing classes will also aim to develop student’s skills in the use of different media and techniques, and to develop their capacity to understand and control the chosen medium. Media used will include: pencil; charcoal and compressed charcoal; soft and hard dry pastel; oil pastel; pen and wash; ink; collage; and mixed media.
