DRAWING, INTRODUCTION  TO

Introduction to drawing will enable students to explore moving pencil or pen across the paper.  It is an exploration in “seeing” in order to note what is present before your eyes.  My philosophy in drawing is to spend more time looking at the subject than in moving your pencil or pen.  Whatever emerges is your view of reality.  Materials needed: pen, pencil, drawing paper pad 14”x17”, 1/8” masonite board-14”x17”.  Class begins September 20.
