  • 2 hours
  • 4 West South Orange Avenue

Service Description

This class offers students a more advanced study of drawing, and all black/white media. This course’s focus is on the development of an advanced understanding of drawing and the depiction of surfaces and texture on form. Students develop an advanced understanding of how contrast, gradation and edge combine to create effects on objects with a wide range of surface characteristics. Students will work primarily from observation in a guided instructional manner. Students have the option to utilize a range of media including charcoal, pencil, ink, and more with a strong focus on skill building, composition, and visual communication. Project complexity builds incrementally as students gain and master skills. Registration: By invitation after completing one full year, or by portfolio approval. * May be repeated based on student skill level and interest. Projects do not repeat, scaffold skills continuously, and become student driven over time.
