About the Course

Before being able to paint with individual style, you will learn how to draw, shape and form images in perspective while creating compositional structures.

Drawing skills are fundamental to a student’s visual education. Through guided practice, students sharpen their powers of observation as they learn to translate what they see into drawings. Using basic tools and materials, students develop their drawing skills by exploring concepts such as line, form, value, proportion, perspective and composition. Thus, students acquire a foundation of skills, paving the way for future work with visual art media.

We will explore topics including landscape, still life, flowers and more.

All levels welcome.
