Mastering the fundamentals of drawing will improve your abilities in any art media. In this class, you’ll combine drawing from life with visualization exercises to really help you “see” in your mind. You’ll be able to apply lessons from this course to your own work, and enhance your drawing skills by exploring several dry media. Observation, form, perspective, proportion and value will all be addressed, preparing you to take on your most ambitious projects with confidence.
