About this course:

As an introduction to representational picture making, in this course we learn how to learn to draw the objects and spaces that surrounds us—those things we see every day. Using the pencil, our fundamental tool, we explore space as expressed through shade, shadow, and light. Participants draw during classroom sessions and on class field trips to museums and galleries throughout Los Angeles. Techniques for developing mark making skills are given, while timely discussions invigorate the drawing practice. Participants are expected to purchase a reasonably-priced beginning drawing kit from their local art store (details provided at our first meeting). Note: Members must provide their own transportation to field trips.
